Workday on the field for the Italian National Men’s Rugby Team as it continues its preparations toward the third and final match of the 2022 Summer Tour scheduled for Sunday, July 10 at 8 p.m. local (6 p.m. Italian) at the Adjarabet Arena in Batumi against hosts Georgia.

After the first part of the morning dedicated to meetings divided by departments, the Azzurri moved to the Poti field – home of Italy’s training sessions – where they carried out collective work with the technical staff led by Kieran Crowley, who on the morning of Friday, July 8, at 12:30 p.m. local (10:30 a.m. Italian) will announce the lineup for the next match that will close the triptych of matches in the summer international window of the National Men’s Major Team.

Among the ranks of Italrugby-after a long period of absence with the last presence in the Azzurri in December 2020-returned Simone Ferrari, who wore Italy’s No. 3 jersey in the matches against Portugal and Romania: “I missed the atmosphere of the rallies and living all the emotions that this jersey gives. I worked a lot to be in the best condition and to be able to be in the call-ups for this Summer Tour. I am grateful to the technical staff for the new opportunity I have been given and I will give my best to be confirmed and give my contribution on and off the field to the team.”

“In this international window we faced different types of opponents. With Portugal we suffered but managed to score a comeback success, while against Romania there was a great reaction not without some mistakes that will have to be filed down toward the next engagement. Georgia is a very physical team that has been waiting for this match for a long time. Compared to the last confrontation four years ago in Florence, they have grown and, in addition to the scrum, they have shown quality in the three-quarter department as well. Our focus will be on our performance with the goal of winning the game,” said the Blue pylon.
