Stoica blow for Italy
2 March 2003 17:53pm
Injury has caused Italy coach John Kirwan to leave centre Cristian Stoica behind as the Azzurri travel to England for their next RBS 6 Nations clash at Twickenham.
Benetton Treviso wing Nicola Mazzucato has been called up to replace the Romanian-born Stoica, who will also provide cover for Mauro Bergamasco.
Bergamasco, who was converted from the pack to the wing by Kirwan to great effect, is also carrying an injury but is fit enough to train with the squad.
