Women’s Rugby, Six Nations 2022: Italy, with England to write history


Italdonne returns to the field on Sunday in Parma for the second round of the TikTok Six Nations 2022 and England will be the opponent of the day . After France, therefore, the second tough challenge for Andrea Di Giandomenico’s blues who want to dispel the last taboo tomorrow.

England, in fact, is the only Six Nations formation that Italy has never beaten . 22 defeats against the British, 13 in the continental tournament, and English who have not lost a match since November 2019. 19 consecutive successes for a team that today dominates the women’s world ranking and that seems almost unbeatable.

Italy, on the other hand, comes from the defeat against France, but at the end of a match that showed excellent potential in the blue ranks. Game that also highlighted the limits, in particular a limp foot game and a scrum that after dominating the first minutes suffered heavily from the French pack, but which also highlighted some interesting individualities, from Alyssa D’Inca to Beatrice Rigoni.

For the match against England Andrea Di Giandomenico chose Vittoria Ostuni Minuzzi at the extreme, Aura Muzzo and Maria Magatti wings, with Michela Sillari and Beatrice Rigoni centers. The median is made up of Veronica Madia and Sofia Stefan, while the scrum sees Elisa Giordano, Isabella Locatelli and Francesca Sberna in third row, Giordana Duca and Sara Tounesi in second, Lucia Gai, Melissa Bettoni and Gaia Maris in first.
