Italy hasn’t been able to win a Six Nations game since 2015. The threat of relegation and the growth of Georgia as a possible contender seems to have caused a lack of motivation for Italy, because their recent performances haven’t been up to snuff. It would be great for the tournament, and for the rugby-loving nation, if Italy could secure at least one win in this year’s tournament towards their goal in capturing the 2024 Rugby World Cup.
