“I am open” – Italy ready to poach three former England stars

Italy head coach Kieran Crowley has revealed he has spoken directly with three England players about pulling on the blue jersey of the Azzurri.

#1. Alex Lozowski

Lozowski, who has an Italian grandmother, could take advantage of the new World Rugby rules surrounding eligibility. The Saracens star, who won the last of his six England caps in 2018, could swap with immediate effect following the rule change.
