Integrated into the Five Nations Tournament in 2000, Italy has never won this competition, but continues to progress with each passing year. They started well by winning their first match as rookies, but the two following tournaments brought less joy. Far from being dejected, the Squadra continued to work hard and won another match, in 2003, under the leadership of John Kirwan.
In 2006, the Italians gleaned their first draw in an away match in Wales. And again the following year in their first encounter in Scotland. But in 2009, once again there was no joy for Italy who were having trouble maintaining their form. They were pretty uneven and had trouble with injuries during the competition…
However, Italy created an upset in 2011 by defeating France in Rome, the first time ever that the French team was beaten by the Italians. Italy are a team to watch in 2012!
