    DoB1981-02-13 BirthplaceBuenos Aires( Argentina) Height1.85 m (6' 1") Weight108 kg (17 st 0 lb) PositionProp

    The powerful prop made his debut in the 48-0 victory over Tonga in the autumn of 2005, but has found opportunities limited by the presence of the likes of Martin Castrogiovanni and Salvatore Perugini. He is combative at scrum time and is a handful around the field, but lacks the explosive power of his more experienced peers.

    Marco Bortolami

    DoB1980-06-12 BirthplacePadova (Italy) Height1.96 m (6' 5") Weight110 kg (17 st 4 lb) PositionLock

    Bortolami started his playing career with Padova, where he made his debut in the second row, aged only 18. At the age of 22, Bortolami was thrown in at the deep end when he was made Italy's youngest ever captain against New Zealand. He is a superb lineout technician and he was sorely missed by the Azzurri during the opening rounds of last year's RBS 6 Nations.

    DoB1988-11-07 BirthplaceTreviso Height1.83 m (6' 0") Weight99 kg (15 st 8 lb) PositionFlanker

    The flanker played with great distinction for the national Under-19 team and his powerful carrying and sleight of hand have earned him a deserved call up. He faces stiff competition to secure a starting role but is unquestionably one to look out for over coming seasons.
