DETAILS

The first match played by an Italian XV was in 1911 between US Milanese and Voiron of France. On 25 July of the same year the “Propaganda Committee” was formed which in 1928 became the Federazione Italiana Rugby (FIR).

In May 1929, Italy played their first international losing 9–0 against Spainin Barcelona.

In 1934, Italy was one of the founder members of FIRA, today’s Rugby Europe; the others were FranceSpainBelgiumPortugal, Catalonia, RomaniaNetherlands and Germany.

Italy has been playing international rugby since 1929, and for decades were considered one of the best European teams outside the Five Nations Championship.

Italian rugby really came to prominence in 2000 when it was added to the Five Nations, creating the Six Nations. Initially, on the end of some heavy defeats, the side has grown in competitiveness, recording a fourth-place finish in 2007 and 2013.

The Azzurri have shown respectable results when playing at home in recent years: during the 2011 Six Nations, the side defeated France 22–21, and in the 2013 Six Nations, Italy won again at home against France (23–18) and defeated Ireland 22–15.

Italy have also competed at every Rugby World Cup since the first tournament in 1987, where it played the inaugural game against New Zealand, but have yet to progress beyond the first round.
