They don't scrub up too badly off the field.

Italians are best known for their skills on the soccer field, but have been tackling another ball sport of late, having a ‘try’ (boom-tish) at rugby, and are not doing too bad at getting a boot in on the international rugby scene.

Today, the Italian rugby team are taking on the Australian Wallabies at Florence’s Artemio Franchi stadium.

We’re all set with our preferred rugby team* scarves and beenies for this afternoon’s rugby match between Italy and Australia.

15. Berrick Barnes (NSW Waratahs)
