Hugs All Around: Italians And English Share Training Session

The Italians and the English came together over a nice helping of rugby in Treviso this week.

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.
