DUBLIN - Prop Nicola Quaglio will make his first start for Italy in one of three changes announced by coach Conor O'Shea yesterday to the team for tomorrow's Six Nations clash against Ireland in Dublin.

Loose forward Braham Steyn, who played in all last year's Six Nations games, returns to the openside and Luca Biga is preferred to the more experienced Leonardo Ghiraldini at hooker after Italy were beaten by England 46-15 in Rome on Sunday.

Quaglio, after three appearances off the bench, comes in for Andrea Lovotti while Steyn replaces youngster Renato Giammarioli in a strengthening of the scrum.

There was no place in the squad for Irish-born flyhalf Ian McKinley.
