“Leoni, a race not to fail, let’s stop the multiphase in Glasgow”

Zani shows the way to return, on Saturday in Monigo, to success after three knockouts in a row “Our stadium must become a fort to move up the rankings immediately”


Twelve of the Lions who have been in the senior national team since yesterday joined their team-mates in preparation for Saturday’s challenge to the Warriors in URC: they are Thomas Gallo, Ivan Nemer, Gianmarco Lucchesi, Niccolò Cannone, Federico Ruzza, Michele Lamaro, Giovanni Pettinelli, Bram Steyn, Luca Morisi, Leonardo Marin, Ratuva Tavuyara and Edoardo Padovani. Among this, someone will surely be part of the 23.

Hame Faiva, Sebastian Negri, Callum Braley, Marco Zanon, Nacho Brex and Monti Ioane are still resting. Another dozen, also available, has been here since yesterday from the A national team. The current injured, therefore currently out, are Cheriof Traorè, who received a blow to the head against Uruguay, Nahuel Chaparro, Riccardo Favretto , Andries Coetzee and Simone Ferrari. In any case, Coach Marco Bortolami and his staff have seen the contingent of players available for the resumption of the championship considerably fleshed out and ready to face a truly delicate challenge against Glasgow, also because Treviso, before the long break, came from three consecutive defeats .

«The training sessions are going very well», assures the hooker Federico Zani, «we use them to refine the small details in view of the return to the field and physically we are fine, we have managed to recover some small ailments during these weeks. The team responded very well, both physically, but also in terms of attitude and mentality ».

What game can we expect from the Glasgow Warriors?

«It will be a fundamental match for us, they are our rivals in the group. Glasgow is a very physical team, they make multiphase their winning weapon. It will be our goal to stop their multiphase, so as not to give them the opportunity to put us in difficulty ».

First you need to keep your concentration high.

«For us a focus of the match is to end the match after the referee’s final whistle, that is, to give everything until the referee gives the end of the match. We will have to fight for 85 minutes and fight to try to win the match ».

Playing on Monigo’s grass will inevitably become a factor in your advantage.

«Yes, Monigo is one more weapon for us, he is our sixteenth man. The fans always make themselves heard and are a winning weapon for us. It has been our strength in the last few games, so we must resume the trend we had undertaken and try to bring the slope back towards the winning route ».

Some statistics after 5 days: in the points scored (Leinster commands with 160) Benetton is a good fifth with 112 and 15 tries, in defense however (the Scarlets first 825 tackles) is last with 492 and 77 misses. In kicks, where the Ospreys excel overall (17 free kicks and 7 transformations) ours are fifth (4, 11). Maluccio instead in the discipline, notoriously one of the weak points: in the face of just 2 yellow cards and 36 free kicks granted by the Lions, the Lions are eleventh with two yellow cards and 56 free kicks given to their opponents. Let’s move on to the touche.

In the lead there are the Warriors with 56 won and just one lost, Treviso occupies a brilliant third place behind Munster with 71 and 3 and 94% of success. And now the most comforting voice, the scrum: Benetton is in the lead with 33 wins (98%) and 8 free kicks earned for fouls opponents. A pack like this should be exploited as much as possible. –
