Injured Canale misses England clash
2 February 2004 19:18pm
Italy's preparations for their RBS 6 Nations opener against world champions England suffered a blow after Gonzalo Canale was ruled out with a thigh injury.
Canale will be out of action for the next two weeks, the Italian Rugby Federation confirmed.
The good news for Azzurri coach John Kirwan is that Benetton Treviso forward Carlo Checchinato will return to training on Wednesday.
Checchinato sustained a slight knee injury during Saturday's game in Gloucester.
