Italy with “The French” Capuzzo, Fuser and Ciccarelli to prepare for the tournament

This Tuesday, the Transalpine coach revealed a squad of 34 players for a prep session, before starting against the Blues.

New Zealand national team coach Kieran Crowley on Tuesday unveiled his first squad of 34 players to prepare for the upcoming Six Nations tournament in Verona from January 22-27. Logically, in this group we find the back of Stade Toulousain Ange Capuozzo, who was named the best advertisement of the year by World Rugby. Pietro Ceccarelli, mainstay of CA Brive is also present, as is second line Marco Fuser who plays for Massy in Pro D2.

As a reminder, Montpellier’s opener, Paolo Garbisi, who sustained a knee injury at the start of the year, is missing. The No. 10 spot should go to Tommaso Allan (Harlequins) and Giacomo Da Re (Benetton Rugby). Row 3 Jake Polledri (Gloucester) is on the way back. Four starters have been called up to the front line: Matteo Nocera, Luca Rizzoli, Mirco Spagnolo and Marco Manfredi.

The Nazis will kick off their tournament by hosting France on Sunday 5 February (4pm), before moving on to Twickenham to challenge England. After years of scarcity, the Italians have regained their colors in 2022, notably the success snatched away from Cardiff in the Championship and the success against Australia in November.
