A solid history for Italy Rugby Union
The Italy Rugby Union team played their first official international match in 1929, and just a few years later, helped to found European Rugby alongside other major nations like France, Spain, the Netherlands and Germany. For the remainder of the twentieth century, they played in European and international rugby tournaments, regarded alongside countries such as Romania as being one of the best national teams outside of the big five. In 2000, Italy Rugby Union was finally invited to join the top teams to create a newly formed Six Nations Rugby: this annual tournament sees England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy compete against one another. Unfortunately, several of the best Italy Rugby Union players left the team at exactly this point, but after a slow start, the team has become a force to be reckoned with, if not a definite winner. Outside the Six Nations, Italy Rugby Union fixtures include matches against international top tier countries - one of the most exciting moments in their history was a 20-18 win against South Africa Rugby in 2016, marking the first time that they had managed to beat Australia, South Africa or New Zealand.
