What a mess!

Benetton Treviso, Italy Champion 2008/09

Benetton Treviso, Italy Champion 2008/09

As I’m preparing to leave for my holidays at last (I’ll be around Japan from 05/08 to 21/08) a huge controversy bursted into Italian Rugby: Benetton Treviso and the Veneto region, also known as the “Italian Wales” for its rugby tradition, have been cut out of the Magners Celtic League.

Aironi Viadana and Pretorians Roma have been chosen by FIR, Italian Rugby Union, to represent Italy in the 2010/2011 Magners League, causing a major turmoil in the Italian rugby world.

As the riot grew, FIR’s Chairman, Giancarlo Dondi, declared his will to riconsider the Board voting… anyhow it will go, our Union proved once again its deficiency at judging and doing the best for our Rugby.  No wonders that IRB rejected Italy’s bid to host one of the next Rugby World Cup (2015  England & 2019  Japan).
