Scotland captain Chris Cusiter admits he is still haunted by his role in Italy's RBS 6 Nations win at Murrayfield back in 2007.
Cusiter threw two interceptions that led to Italian tries as the Azzurri silenced Murrayfield with three scores during the first six minutes in their 37-17 win.
And the 27-year-old admits he is expecting another hard-fought encounter at the Stadio Flamminio.
“I know what my role was in that but it was a long time ago now and I’ve moved on,” he told the Herald.
“It’s one of the bad days, one of the really bad days. Horrible, really horrible.
“But I’m confident we can go and get a result. It will be a big pressure game for them and for us.
“England struggled to get themselves away from Italy, and that showed it’s a tough place to go. Our ability to control a game will be tested, because they always make it tight.
“That’s what can happen there. They’re so dogged and determined, they’ll never allow the away team to get comfortable.
“Last year at home, we scored a try early on, got ourselves a bit of a lead and it was more comfortable, but I can never remember it being like that before. They’re a tough team to beat.”
