Italia has fielded a national rugby team since the late 1920’s, and was recently added in 2000 to the prestigious European Six Nations Annual Rugby Tournament with England, France, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland.  Although the European Rugby Union Championship was won only once by Italia in 1995/1997, the Azzurri in rugby finished second place 9 times, and third place a total of 8 times.  Italia has also played in every Rugby World Cup since the tournament inception in 1987.  To learn more about the Italian Azzurri Rugby squad, visit the official website of the Federazione Italiana Rugby at www.federugby.it
