Ahead of Ireland’s 6 Nations clash against Italy in Rome this weekend why not take a look inside the Italian setup.
Former Ireland international Conor O’Shea took charge of Italy last June and World Rugby went behind the scenes in November as O’Shea’s side prepared to face two-time World Cup champions South Africa.
The Azzurri shocked the rugby world as they defeated the Springboks 20-18 in Florence. This is a unique look inside the belly of the beast as O’Shea and his backroom staff work to turn Italy from minnows into a force to be reckoned with.
Joe Schmidt’s Ireland might be favourites this weekend but one thing that’s guaranteed is the Italians won’t roll over in the Stadio Olimpico.
