Bennett has been once again been earmarked to start at centre for head coach, Vern Cotter.

Bennett has been ever present for Scotland in the opening two Six Nations fixtures so far - starring in the 9-15 defeat to England and the narrow 23-27 defeat against Wales.

Now Bennett and his Scots pals are gunning to kick start their campaign at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome when they take on Italy.
