Italy: topicality and form
It was already experiencing a historic year since its victory at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, on March 19, as part of the 6 Nations Tournament (21-22), the Italian selection once again wrote history last Saturday, by defeating Australia (28-27). And yes, it’s a real feat achieved by the Italians, who had never won a single match against this top nation in the southern hemisphere. It is now done. The more the months progress, the more this Italian team seems to converge towards the top of the basket of European rugby. Attention nevertheless, humility obliges. The game against South Africa will give us more information about the ability of the Italians to be consistent.
Anyway, the year 2022 and this autumn tour is already a proud success for Kieran Crowley and his players. Carried by the familiar faces of Ange Capuozzo and Paulo Garbisi – although they withdrew last week – the Italians have a bright future ahead of them and promise us great things. However, to overcome South Africa, it will be necessary to raise the cursor still a notch compared to Australia (28-27) or Samoa (49-17). At the opening in particular, Tommaso Allan will have to be more skilful against the poles if he wants to help achieve one of the craziest exploits in the history of Italian sport.
South Africa: topicality and form
Defeated in Ireland (19-16) and France (30-26), South Africa is experiencing a nightmarish autumn tour. Indeed, the Spingboks had moved with intentions on the old continent, they failed against the two best teams of the moment. A blow for the world champion who wanted to restore order one year from the next world in France.
Nevertheless, South Africa remains a very solid team, as evidenced by its very short defeats in this tour, and is obviously the favorite against Italy. We recall that she finished second in the last Rugby Championship and won at least once against each of the teams present in the competition, in particular New Zealand. Thus, there is no denying that South Africa is still one of the top nations at present and it will obviously be named among the favorites for the next World Cup.
