Italy do a Job on England
England 14 Italy 15

This game was a warm-up to the World Cup kicking off next week in Cardiff and is sure to raise some questions about England’s performance although to give credit to Italy their side has some pedigree throughout with many players from the top RL competition in the World the Australian NRL.
Coventry Bears Fabrizio Ciaurro featured in the team on the wing for over 25 minutes with a great 30 metre break and solid defensive effort with England halfback Rangi Chase opposite him on the field.
