The Italians and the English came together over a nice helping of rugby in Treviso this week.
GRAZIE ITALIA 🤝— England Rugby (@EnglandRugby) July 30, 2019
Thank you @federugby for joining us at our Treviso training camp 🇮🇹
Look forward to seeing you at @NUFC on Friday 6 September for the #QuilterInternationals [Tickets: https://t.co/tdU6kqBm0s]#WearTheRose 🌹 @O2Sports pic.twitter.com/TdkjbJy8ER
The sides will meet in the Summer Test Series on September 6th, as the two teams work out their combinations ahead of the Rugby World Cup in Japan this autumn.
It was a rare sight to see two potential opponents work together, and it'll be interesting to see if it pays off. And while England and Italy won't meet in the World Cup unless they both make the knockout rounds (hey, you never know), they do meet on September 6.
