    I thought Id open one. With us currently in the 6N most of the discussion is in there, but this forum and thread can be for discussing the players form and transfers while there is not many international games around.

    He has been injured so at the moment he is in the 'A' team. Maybe he will be tried in the senior team with a bit of time.

    I have a question that hasn't really got anything to do with the Italian rugby team per se, but with their kit. I loved the old jersey they had, with Jaguar as sponsor. Would any of you know where I could buy one like that? I've searched the web, but nothing came up :(

    Also, I don't get to see Italian club rugby, but how good is that young lad that replaced Masi at fly-half against England?

    Firstly I have no idea where you can get the kit, but I will search around. Secondly I also dont really watch Italian club rugby, danit is normally the handy person for such knowledge on the Italian game in general. However from what danit has said Marcato is talented, but also he has alot of work.

    I found the rugby italian jersey that was closest to what they play in at

    I just ordered one a few days ago so I'll let you know. Its a tight fit playing jersey with everything.

    is Buso performing well right now? he is being tipped to replace Bortolussi who has fractured his shoulder in training
  13. Nidhogg

    Nidhogg Guest

    @Chez, is that the current one with the Cariparma logo? I'd appreciate some feedback, I'm looking to buy that one myself. I'm 6 foot 4/5 and 90 kg and around 200 pounds, and I thought I'd order a Large one.

    @Deano, "talented but needs work", that seems to be the trend these days. I hope he'll get a start so we can see him at work for a considerable period, not just 10-minute spells.

    The results in U20 six nation were satisfying.

    Ireland 6-0 Italy

    Italy 13-22 Ireland

    Wales 33-13 Italy

    France 24-16 Italy

    Italy 14-13

    We never really got beaten badly and considering the last few 6N U20 teams it seems we have a good youth to work upon.

    Italy U20 played very well,instead of the "A" selection...It os maybe the strongest Italian second selection ever made but they didn't play well...Anyway I hope to see Orquera in the First National Team.He is a really good Fly Half,even if I prefer Marcato...

    Very good performance by Italian U20. The Senior side is starting to get stronger, I can feel something coming for the Italians. I always thought they would beat Scotland, and only seemed to struggle completely in the second half v Wales. Italy's future is very bright! I predict the Italians to break into the Top 3 in the 6 Nations in one of the years before the 2011 World Cup.

    Remember this ;)
