Could be an interesting game with rumors that the AB's could rest a large number of first choice players and give some of the other squad players some game time. I'd expect to see the Flynn, Franks, Boric, Messem, Latimer, Ellis, Donald, Delany, MacAlister, Ellison, and Ben Smith either starting or getting some extended game-time from the bench. I fear that even a second-string AB's team may prove to be too good for Italy who have not really had the best of years (despite competing well against the AB's in NZ). Italy should be able to compete in the forwards- they obviously have a strong front-row with Perugini, Castrogiovanni, and AgÃ¼ero as props, and Ongaro or Ghiraldini at hooker. While I'm unsure about their locks, they have a number of quality loose forards in Bergamasco, Parisse, and Zanni. The AB's should dominate the Italians in the backs though, so I expect the AB's to play a bit more of an open game plan than they have been previously playing - hopefully the likes of Guilford and Ben Smith get a chance to show what they can do given a bit of space!
