The introduction of Rugby to Italy began in Genoa between 1890 and 1895 because of the British communities in the area. in 1929 the formation of The Italian Rugby Foundation took place allowing Italy to play their first international game in the same year. This first international match was against Spain, Italy lost 9-0. The popularity of Rugby in Italy rapidly increased as Italy participated in the Rugby World Cup in 1987. Rugby’s popularity in Italy improved again when the country joined the Six Nations in 2000.

Italian rugby’s traditional heartland consists of the Po Valley and other parts of Northern Italy.  This is because Italy’s introduction to Rugby is as a result of Italian workers returning from France. The returning workers gave Rugby a significant rural/working class base, which still exists in towns such as Treviso and Rovigo.

Also featuring is a contrast inner placket, arms and collar stand.
