In light of the A Championship, which begins next October 2 (the first day away at Civitavecchia), Livorno has boosted rugby by vaccinating four “old acquaintances”, athletes whose opponents (also) “last year”, in B.
From the Amaranth Lions, they transferred the power to the Three Roses Club, the thirty-year-old bitch Alberto Giusti The opening half Diego Rolla (For the latter, the ’96, green-and-white rugby-born, that’s a comeback); The 35-year-old edifice descended into the shadow of Quattro Mori of CUS Siena David Bezzoli The opening half Filippo BartolomeucciBorn in 2001.
All players are set up to carve out important spaces, and are definitely not registered to “make numbers”.
Coach Marco Zacagna, in these early days of the sessions, also combined into the first team two elements born in 2005, center Giorgio Linzi and third line Christian Raffo, who appeared last year in Livorno U-17 Rugby, second seeded in the National Championship category.
The two, although also active at the Federal Development Center in Livorno, will be part of the Green and White Under-19 representative. Lorenzo NaniExtreme middle class 2004, National under 19, mate Andrea Rossia scrum half who played, convincingly, as a rookie, with the seniors, the last four races of last Super Season.
Compared to last year, three players born in 2003, born and raised in the green-and-white nursery school, no longer appear on the roster, and who (legally) aim for professional careers: Bitch Diego De Rossi has landed in the country (Serie A, group 2) , the inaugural Alessandro Gesi was called to the Federal Academy Zebras, while second line Filippo Lavorenti (transfer will be completed in a few days) was assigned to CUS Torino (newly promoted to Top 10).
Returning to Liguria, after two seasons in the green and white jersey, the opening half was elusive – Pietro Jaggero.
Zino Menicucci, Alberto Neri, Diego Santi and Pietro Canepa hang their shoes, although they were little used last year.
At the moment, the third line has not been trained Alberto Mirani: In the end, the former captain will return to the ranks next January; Back in pink, however, the trocar Giacomo Zanoni.
Just a month after the tournament kicked off, Livorno Rugby made a profitable dip from September 2-4 at Pian degli Ontani (858 meters above sea level), in the municipality of Abetone-Cutigliano.
Way to strengthen the group, in view of a particularly difficult tournament. In each of the three Serie A groups, there are 11 teams at the start.
Playoff for first promotion from each group and best second: Only one formation will advance to the top ten.
In all, for four teams: the last of each group and the worst in the triangle to be played between the penultimate team of each group. Before the start of the tournament, Livorno Rugby will not play friendlies.
