    After starting their 2019 Six Nations campaign with a convincing bonus-point win in Scotland, Italy had to settle for a 3-3 draw against Wales in Lecce after Michela Sillari missed a penalty in the final moments of the game.

    Despite missing the chance to start their campaign with back-to-back wins, the Azzurre are unbeaten in this year’s competition and enter Round Three second in the Six Nations standings.

    They host an Ireland side which recovered from a heavy opening-day loss against England to kick-start their campaign with a 22-5 win over Scotland.

    Tries from Aoife McDermott, Leah Lyons, Alison Miller and Anna Caplice helped to ensure that Adam Griggs’ side came away from Scotstoun with both a win and a bonus point.

    If you enjoy being active and want to build your fitness and strength then rugby union is the sport for you.

    From scrummaging and tackling, to sprinting with the ball, rugby can be a high-intensity workout that will boost both your fitness and your strength.

    If the idea of traditional 15-a-side game seems intimidating, there are various versions of the game that you can test out, such as touch rugby, where tackling is banned, and a wheelchair version that proved a big hit at 2012 Paralympics in London.

    If you want to find out more about rugby union and how you can get involved, see our handy guide here.
