It is certain that this Italian rugby player did not retain his team’s defeat against South Africa during the Autumn Tour last Saturday in Genoa. That day, at the end of the meeting, Pierre Bruno, who plays as a winger, asked his company in marriage.
As evidenced by the video posted on Twitter by the Italian rugby federation, the request took place on the lawn of the stadium, in front of thousands of spectators still present in the enclosure. We see Pierre Bruno moved, kneel in front of his company, Jessica, holding a ring in his hands.

Understanding what is happening, the young woman burst into tears before finally saying “Yes” to her future husband, under public hours. Originally from Parma, Pierre Bruno was therefore able to make his request at home. “Playing at home is always special for us (…). For the Genoese of the group, Pierre Bruno, it will certainly be a special afternoon, but the whole team is counting on it, the public is really fundamental for us, “said Michele Lamaro, captain of the Nazionale, at a press conference. according to The Parisian.
On the field, after jostling the Springboks in the first period, the Italians were beaten heavily by their opponent. The South Africans scored seven tries in the second half and eventually won 63-21, overshadowing the two losses conceded in Ireland and France.
