Alessandro Troncon Alessandro Troncon

Italy's captain must attempt to build a new relationship with his half-back partner after the retirement of influential fly-half Diego Dominguez.

With over 50 caps for his country, Troncon made his first international debut against Spain in 1994 and has not looked back.

A scorer of two tries against France last year, he is a deadly force when close to the line, as he showed against Australia in 1994 when he notched up two tries.
