Rugby World Cup 2023 – The composition of Italy against Uruguay: Tommaso Allan fly-half, Paolo Garbisi first center

The Italian federation formalized this Monday the team composition of the Nazionale, which faces Uruguay this Wednesday in Nice. To breathe some space into his crosses and allow Allan and Garbisi to play, coach Kieran Crowley aligned the two players respectively at opening and in the center.

His choice was to start both players! Coach Kieran Crowley, who has placed a lot of trust in Paolo Garbisi to direct the game at the Nazionale since the start of his mandate, saw Tommaso Allan replace him brilliantly this summer. For Italy’s second match in the World Cup, against Uruguay this Wednesday in Nice, the technician decided to combine the two players, at the opening and first center. Paolo Garbisi thus plays with the number 12 which he wore in the majority of his matches with Montpellier last season.

Lorenzo Pani, who was included in the group after Padovani’s withdrawal, is having his first World Cup appearance. Ange Capuozzo returns to his full-back position. The powerful Sebastian Negri will reach 50 caps.

Italy’s starting XV: 15. Capuozzo ; 14. Pani, 13. Brex, 12. P. Garbisi, 11. Ioane; 10. Allan, 9. A. Garbisi ; 7. Lamaro (cap.), 8. L. Cannone, 6. Negri; 5. Ruzza, 4. N. Cannone; 3. Riccioni, 2. Nicotera, 1. Fischetti.

Substitutes: 16. Bigi, 17. Zani, 18. Ceccarelli, 19. Lamb, 20. Zuliani, 21. Pettinelli, 22. Fusco, 23. Odogwu.

As a reminder, Italy easily beat Namibia (52-8) for its first match in Group A of the World Cup.
