PRO14 Returns | Benetton Rugby v Zebre Rugby

Round 14 kicks off with an Italian derby as Benetton Rugby host  Zebre. The last time the two sides met, in Round 9, Benetton enjoyed a decent 36-25 victory despite playing just over three-quarters of the game with fourteen men after an early red card.


If Zebre hope to avoid a replication of the Round 9 result, their forwards will be required to step up a few levels to stem the marauding tide the Benetton pack unleashed upon them previously.


Benetton are currently sitting in fifth position in Conference B while Zebre are shouldering the rest of Conference A.
