'My 10-year-old is better at Italian than me'

Italy head coach Conor O'Shea admits his 10-year-old daughter is better at Italian than him.

The former Harlequins director of rugby was discussing his first few months as head coach of Italy after joining them at the end of the Premiership season in May.

The 46-year-old told BBC Radio 5 live: "My eldest daughter just turned 10 and she's correcting me in everything I'm say now - it's pretty embarrassing."

O'Shea added: "There's so much good that's here in Italy, in terms of their rugby and their sporting structure, but there's so much that can be improved."

Italy host the All Blacks in Rome on 12 November and face South Africa the following week.
