Wasps star Andrea Masi has been recalled to the Italy squad for their last two Six Nations matches against Ireland and England.

Masi missed the three opening matches because of injury, and the experienced 32-year-old, who can play in virtually every position in the back-line, has been badly missed by the Azzurri.

Parma lock George Biagi received his first call up to the squad as a replacement for Alessandro Zanni.

Italy coach Jacques Brunel - whose side have lost all three matches so far this season - has recalled prop Michele Rizzo after he was suspended for the previous game, the 21-20 defeat in Rome by Scotland.

Italy play Ireland in Dublin on Saturday and end their campaign at home to England a week later.

Forwards: Matias Aguero (Zebre), Martin Castrogiovanni (Toulon), Lorenzo Cittadini (Treviso), Alberto De Marchi (Treviso), Michele Rizzo (Treviso), Leonardo Ghiraldini (Treviso), Davide Giazzon (Zebre), Marco Bortolami (Zebre), Quintin Geldenhuys (Zebre), Antonio Pavanello (Treviso), George Fabio Biagi (Zebre), Robert Barbieri (Treviso), Paul Derbyshire (Treviso), Joshua Furno (Biarritz), Sergio Parisse (Stade Francais), Manoa Vosawai (Treviso)

Backs: Edoardo Gori (Treviso), Tito Tebaldi (Ospreys), Tommaso Allan (Perpignan), Luciano Orquera (Zebre), Tommaso Benvenuti (Perpignan), Michele Campagnaro (Treviso), Gonzalo Garcia (Zebre), Alberto Sgarbi (Treviso), Mirco Bergamasco (Rovigo), Angelo Esposito (Treviso), Tommaso Iannone (Zebre), Luke McLean (Treviso), Leonardo Sarto (Zebre), Andrea Masi (Wasps)
