Last minute package to Italy

Italy hooker Luca Beggi pulled out at the last minute on Wednesday, ahead of the match against Uruguay.

Before the start of the match between Italy and Uruguay, next Wednesday, in the first group matches of the World Cup, the Azzurra team was subjected to withdrawal at the last minute. The Transalpins’ first hooker, Luca Bigi, surrendered and was replaced in short order by Giacomo Nicotera. Until now, the nature of the injury suffered by Parma player Zebre has not been revealed.

In addition to spoiling Italy’s plans, this sudden defection has caused Kieran Crawley a real headache. The New Zealand coach does not have another professional hooker in his squad, so it is the substitute left corner, Federico Zani, who will face the difficult task of replacing Giacomo Nicotera during the match. Treviso’s mainstay, Ivan Nemmer, therefore joins the bench and should replace the No. 1, Danilo Fischetti, during the match.

In this first group, which includes France and New Zealand, Italy began its journey with an artillery shell, destroying Namibia 52-8. For their part, the Tyros team presented an impressive performance during their debut, and strongly shook the French XV team, which won unconvincingly last Thursday at Stade Pierre Maurois in Lille (27-12).
