The last italian rugby week has been occupied by the discussions about the future of rugby in Italy. The italian federation and the Super 10 clubs have had meetings to see what solution can be given to a movement that is not growing as strongly as aspected. A new domestic tournament or two federal teams in the Celtic League and Heineken Cup? This is the big question.

The positions are not yet clear. Actually the italian federation would like to have one or two selections, with the best italian players, to play either the Heineken Cup or the Celtic League&Heineken Cup. The clubs, or at least most of them, would like just to reform the domestic championship with no federal selections. Treviso, Calvisano and Viadana could be interested in the Celtic League option, but only if they can play it, with their clubs.
What will happen next? The 19th of december the Italian Federation will meet and propose one solution. The rumors talk about maintaning the Super 10 like it is now, but create two selections that will play just the Heineken Cup. It should be the first step to the Celtic League, but for many supporters and experts it will just be a bad italian job. No solution and no future for the italian rugby.
