Guinness PRO12 Rugby Editor

9 Sep 2016


The Benetton Rugby staff has announced the Benetton Rugby team to face Ulster tomorrow at 18.05 at the Monigo Stadium in the second round of the Guinness Pro12 2016/2017.

After the away match in Dublin against Leinster, despite the defeat, the lions left the camp with confidence after giving a hard time to the team that closed the championship in second place in the standings.

Ulster beat Newport Gwent Dragons in their first home match. Predictions are that will certainly be an exciting match, with two teams that have changed a lot and wish to do well right now.

Benetton Captain Alessandro Zanni is unavailable due to injury to his knee in the opening minutes of last week’s match against Leinster.

Only one change in the XV that will take the field, Marco Barbini will take the place of the aforementioned Zanni.
