After a long journey we recover our energy – Knew Andrea di Giandomenico — and women are doing a good job of preparing themselves better. I am sure that this experience will allow me to face future encounters with greater awareness, both from a logistical and technical perspective. We know that sport can be very challenging in terms of physical confrontation: hit, run and meeting point grids will give us important information about the level of our performance. We are here to confirm our idea of rugby and look for the necessary performance to continue the path towards the World Championship.
