TOTTON’S Dave Sisi is set to play against England for the first time tomorrow (4.45pm).

The former Tottonians colt has played in Italy’s three matches during this year’s Six Nations.

But tomorrow’s game at Twickenham will be the biggest match of the 25 year-old’s career so far.

The flanker told the BBC: “It’s going to be incredibly emotional, I cannot wait.

“I’m ready for the challenge, I’ve always wanted to be an international rugby player and representing Italy is a huge source of pride to me and my family.

“It’s something I take very seriously. I’m speechless sometimes thinking about it.”

Sisi, a former Hounsdown pupil who plays for Italian outfit Zebre, enjoyed success with England U20s but qualifies for Italy through his grandparents, who emigrated to England during World War II.

England are well aware of the threat posed by Italy as they prepare to bounce back from last week’s defeat against Wales.

“If Conor lets them play then they can play and produce some magic out the back. We’re prepared for that and we’re not underestimating them,” said England lock George Kruis.

“They’ve put on some pretty good performances in this Six Nations and we know they could chuck anything at us - like they have done previously.

"They’re unpredictable and can play in different styles. With Italy you’ve got to expect anything and that’s exactly what we’re thinking about.”
