Italy will hope to kick off their Rugby World Cup in style against Namibia.
The Azzurri are traditionally seen as Six Nations whipping boys, but will hope to carve out success for themselves on the world stage.
The Italians have won just four matches in all competitions and warm-ups since November 2016, but could require three in four games to advance from Pool B.
They did enjoy an enormous 85-15 triumph over Russia this summer, and will hope to take full advantage of games against teams closer to their level at the RWC.
Namibia came through the African Qualifiers for the World Cup with 13 wins out of 13 but have struggled against marginally higher teams in the rankings.
They were defeated 20-0 during the Nations Cup in the summer… against Russia.
