Italy Background

The Five Nations became the Six Nations when Italy became the final member of this elite band of Northern Rugby Nations and at the time there were many dissenters as it was thought they would find it hard to hold their own and compete at this level against the likes of England and France.

While they have been fighting it out for the wooden spoon ever since in recent years their performances have improved, nevertheless their ground just demonstrates where this game stands in Italian sporting rankings and that is very much as the poor relations. Many people from the home countries travel to Rome for an excuse to have another six nations venue to travel to but this novelty may well wear off over the next few years unless Italy performs at a better level.
