The rossoblu formation is evaluating how to reinforce the front line

Top10, Rovigo: the Venetians are looking at the market, they are looking for a prop (Ph. Massimiliano Carnabuci)

“The rugby transfer market never sleeps”, a phrase that is as timely as ever in the world of Ovalia. The horizon is that of the Top10 where, Rovigo, would be considering strengthening its squad on the front line by going in search of a prop.

Unfortunately, everything revolves around Marco Ciccioli’s injury. The Italian-Argentine front line suffered a dislocated shoulder in the match against Petrarca. A physical problem that could even force him to stop for two months, as he reports The Voice of Rovigo.

The focus therefore goes to the right props: Etienne Swanepoel and Nicola Pomaro are currently available. But be careful, because Swanepoel is often the victim of neck problems and therefore Pomaro’s playing time could increase exponentially, obviously leaving doubts about his long-term performance, also given how expensive it is to play in that role. The Venetian company is therefore evaluating how to strengthen the department.

Meanwhile, with respect to the three-quarters from Rovigo: Argentine scrum-half Lautaro Bazan Velez, who played part of the 2022 Autumn Nations Series with Argentina, has returned to training with the group.


In the next round of Top10, Rovigo will be on stage in Turin, away, against CUS.
