ROME (AP) -- Italy captain Sergio Parisse returns for the final Six Nations match, against title-chasing England at Rome's Stadio Olimpico.

Parisse had a calf injury and was rested for the 46-7 defeat to Ireland last weekend but returns for Saturday in one of three changes.

The Stade Francais No. 8 will once again draw level with the injured Martin Castrogiovanni as Italy's most capped player when he makes his 105th appearance for his country.

The other two changes come in the front row where Lorenzo Cittadini replaces Castrogiovanni after the prop was forced off at Lansdowne Road with broken ribs.

On the left, Matias Aguero replaces Alberto De Marchi, who drops to the bench.

England is the only European team Italy has never beaten.
