...but at least now we know what happened to Hutch Maiava!!!
The last paragraph in that article strikes an incredibly optimistic note though:-
With 11 NRL experienced players expected to suit up for the Azzuri in their first game against Wales, games like this one will prove invaluable for their preparation for international Rugby League’s biggest stage.
Assuming that this Italian side won't be remotely close to what will play in next year's WC, I'm not sure how this will prove 'invaluable' preparation.
Next week, Italy play Fiji - in Sydney.
