    How is rugby catching on in Italia? In which parts of the country is it most predominant?

    Do not live in Italy myself, Im a Londoner, with an Italian father. Which is why I decided to join a Rugby forum, to learn a bit more about the views of rugby in Italy and the views on Italy as a rugby nation in general.

    Treviso who are top of the league in Italy... its a very sporting town, they also have one of the best basketball teams in Italy, surprising for quite a small city.

    Rugby seems like it is growing, but it is still a long way away from being a main sport in Italy... however the Flaminio is always full when the rugby team play which is something quite good and it is becoming more popular.

    I would say it is a bit more popular in the north... as you can see the main teams such as Viadana and the 2 Parma clubs are of course all situated around Parma... Calvisano is near Milan. Treviso is Northern Italy. Probably quite popular in some smaller cities like L'Aquila, Parma etc.

    Nice Kit at Calvisano...
    What team do you support?
  6. Deano

    Deano Guest

    In Italy I support Almaviva Capitolina because they are based in Rome ... In other nations I support Stade Francais because they have 3 Italians :)

    Didn't Calvisano defeat Bourgoin at Bourgoin last season?

    With so many of the Top Italian rugbymen playing abroad this must not be difficult for the Italian clubs to be at the level of the H-cup.

    By the way do you know what is the position of the Italian clubs in the ongoing crisis at the ERC?

    Didn't Calvisano defeat Bourgoin at Bourgoin last season?[/b][/quote]no, it was Treviso 2 seasons ago, they beat Bougoin home and abroad, and beat Bath too, but Treviso at that time had players like Canale and Parisse...

    no position at all, just standing at the window and seeing what's happening

    at the moment in Italy there's a huge clash: the Federation would like to set up 3-4 fanchises but the Super10 League doesn't, big clubs want to go by thier own with no franchises and just a few professional sides, two major tems (Treviso and Calvisano) already letf the Super10 league, little clubs don't want franchises and don't want big clubs to leave the League... a mess...

    Questi i convocati: BACCHETTI Andrea (Femi CZ Rugby Rovigo), BARBIERI Andrea (Consiag I Cavalieri R.Prato), BECCARIS Luca (Cammi Calvisano), BORSI Alessandro (Cammi Calvisano), BUSO Paolo (Cammi Calvisano), CECCATO I Enrico (Marchiol Sanmarco), CRISTIANO Filippo (Cammi Calvisano), DE MARCHI Alberto (Overmach Parma), DERBYSHIRE Paul (Rolly Gran Parma), DUCA Davide (Consiag I Cavalieri R.Prato), DUCA Natale (Arix Viadana), GATTO Nicola (Carrera Petrarca Padova), GIAZZON Davide (Marchiol Sanmarco), GIOVANCHELLI Lorenzo (Carrera Petrarca Padova), MINTO Francesco (Overmach Cariparma), PAVAN Riccardo (Overmach Cariparma), RUBINI Giulio (Overmach Cariparma), SCIAMANNA Plinio (Arix Viadana), SEMENZATO Fabio (Benetton Treviso), SEPE Michele (AlmavivA Capitolina), SGARBI Alberto (Benetton Treviso), TEBALDI Tito (Rolly Gran Parma), TVERAGA Mantvydas (Stade Francais), WILSON Michael (Saracens)

    Danit you could probably have more idea on who the more promising players are from this bunch so please enlighten me :)
  12. danit

    danit Guest

    forwards: sure prospects are Tveraga (lithuanian origins) - a strong lock playing quite well for Stade Francais espoirs, Giovanchelli - a good hooker playing regulary in italian Super10 at Padova, and the capt. Derbyshire - a flanker with leadership attitude playing at Parma

    backs: to be mentioned are the wingers Sepe (he has some caps with the senior national team too) and Bacchetti, a player who was picked by Biarritz but who preferred to go back home some months ago despite the good preseason he had with the senior team and the very good season he was having with the espoirs team

    but probably the most promising players above all are the very youngs Wilson - a scrumhalf playing for Saracens, and Magri (actually injured) - a flyhalf (or fullback) playing for Stade Francais, both still 18-19 years old and already showing great attitudes
  13. Deano

    Deano Guest

    Thanks, good stuff... I will look out for Wilson and Magri... could be our future partnership at scrum half and fly half. I also have grea hope for Sepe who Ive seen a bit. We still have a decent future to go with some youngish players from the senior team.. Pratichetti(22), Mirco Bergamasco (23/24), Parisse (23/24), Canale (24), Masi (25), Castrogiovanni (25), Bernabo (22)

    these guys won 10-27 at Falkirk last night

    I couldn't see the game (no tv coverage was scheduled) but I read some reports

    the game started well for scottish, who scored a try in the first minutes and were leading 10-3 at min. 17

    halftime score was 10-9

    second half was totally italian, with a huge performance by the pack (prop Sciamanna motm), a penalty try under the scrum pressure, a second try by the hooker Giazzon, a good performance from the kicker D. Duca (5 pens, 1 conv) and an outstanding defence by everybody that didn't allow the scots to play any offense in 2nd half

    congrats to guys!

    Corporate teams are the best way to go IMO.

    The Japanese TOPLEAGUE teams have little or no advertising because they are paid for by their owning Corporations like IBM Big Blue and Toyota Verblitz.

    Also as they are Japanese, they can afford to have reeaaaally silly names like "WORLD FIGHTINGBULL", "SANYO WILD KNIGHTS" and "NORTHAMPTON" :lol:
