Italy has always been better known for it's footballers than rugby players so maybe Frankie Sheahan had football on his mind at the Stadio Olimpico yesterday when he said that Italy were missing "Baresi".
Of course, Sheahan was referring to Italy missing their captain, Sergio Parisse, and just got his Italian greats mixed up.
Maybe former AC Milan centre back Franco Baresi is a client of Sheahan's Front Row sports management. It wouldn't be above him getting a plug in for one of his clients.
