EDINBURGH: Scotland rebounded from their drubbing at the hands of England at Twickenham to defeat Italy 34-10 in a Six Nations match at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Leading 13-3 at half-time, the Scots ran in four opportunistic tries from Tim Visser, Matt Scott Stuart Hogg and Sean Lamont, with Greig Laidlaw supplying the rest of the points from the boot.

Alessandro Zanni battled over for a late consolation Italian try, converted by Kris Burton.
