After two weekends of rest that have seen many white & black boys wearing the jersey of Italy in the last two rounds of the Six Nations tournament, Zebre Rugby squad has left Parma this morning for Ireland for the last away on the green island for the current season. Tomorrow night at 7.15 the Italian Northwest franchise will be hosted by the RaboDirect PRO12 and Amlin Challenge Cup reigning champions of Leinster. The Dubliners include as many as 18 players into the Irish national team which won the Six Nations winners trophy for the first time since 2009 in the Irish Rugby Football Union hall of fame.
As the 2014 RaboDirect PRO12 Masterclass approaches, we are catching up with the official ambassador from each of the competition's 12 clubs. Zebre winger Giovanbattista Venditti tells us what to expect from the day, how he got into rugby and importance to introducing youngsters to the sport.
