Parisse to join Italy World Cup squad

Sergio Parisse will join the Italy squad

Italy captain Sergio Parisse will join up with his Rugby World Cup team mates after he underwent a final examination of his calf in Paris on Monday.

Parisse missed Italy’s first two World Cup matches and has been training with his club Stade Francais in Paris after having surgery to drain a haematoma in his right calf in early September.

The Italian captain has been undergoing constant check-ups and picked up the injury in Italy’s final pre-World Cup game against Wales in Cardiff on 5 September.

Thirty-two-year-old Parisse has played 113 times for Italy and 60 of those were as captain.

The check-up on Monday showed a significant reduction in the haematoma.

Parisse will join preparations for Italy’s next match, against Ireland at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday.
