Alessandro Troncon
Alessandro Troncon
Born: 16/9/73
Position: Scrum-half
Team: Treviso
Debut: 7/5/94 v Spain
Past World Cups: 1995 and 1999
Did you know? Nicknamed 'Tronky'
Since making his debut for Italy back in 1994, Troncon has rarely been missing from the team sheet.

He has almost 80 caps under his belt and, still with some years left of his international career, looks set to become the first Italian to pick up a century of caps for his country.

With Diego Dominguez he formed one of the most established half-back pairings in world rugby.

Following Dominguez's slip out of the limelight, Troncon has found Ramiro Pez fit into the role just as easily.

Troncon's fiesty temperament, his precision and pace at box kicks from the back of the scrum as well as his skill at finding gaps on the break, make him a world-class performer.
