A forerunning sled crashed into the worker Thursday at the Sanki Sliding Center. The unidentified worker broke both legs and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. Youve got to feel for Italy this week.Facing the All Blacks a week after the world champions suffered a first defeat in 19 matches and have since come in for all kinds of criticism, including a poor attitude and a lack of respect for their choice of haka, the poor old Azzurri look to be on a hiding to nothing this weekend.Regardless, Saturdays Test in Rome at least gives Italian rugby fans the chance to watch the All Blacks in action for the first time since 2012 when New Zealand triumphed 42-10. Three years prior in Milan, the scoreline was a much more respectable 20-6 and perhaps thats where the Italians will look for inspiration.But after last weeks shock loss to Ireland, the All Blacks will be desperate to put in a performance that meets their impossibly-high standards; starting with a distinct improvement in discipline after they were on the wrong end of a whopping 12-4 penalty count in Chicago.Team newsItalyGiorgio Bronzini will make his bow for the Azzurri after being named as starting scrum-half alongside fly-half Carlo Canna for the match.Edoardo Padovani, Giulio Bisegni, Tommaso Benvenuti, Luke McLean, Angelo Esposito, Carlo Canna, Giorgio Bronzini; Sergio Parisse (c), Simone Favaro, Maxime Mbanda, Andries van Schalkwyk, Marco Fuser, Lorenzo Cittadini, Leonardo Ghiraldini, Andrea Lovotti.Replacements: Ornel Gega, Sami Panico, Pietro Ceccarelli, George Biagi, Francesco Minto, Edoardo Gori, Tommaso Allan, Tommaso Boni.New ZealandSteve Hansen has made 12 changes to the starting side, with Liam Coltman and Rieko Ioane to debut from the bench.Damian McKenzie, Israel Dagg, Malakai Fekitoa, Anton Lienert-Brown, Waisake Naholo, Aaron Cruden, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Steven Luatua, Sam Cane (c), Elliot Dixon, Scott Barrett, Patrick Tuipulotu, Charlie Faumuina, Codie Taylor, Wyatt Crockett.Replacements: Liam Coltman, Joe Moody, Ofa Tuungafasi, Brodie Retallick, Matt Todd, Aaron Smith, Lima Sopoaga, Rieko Ioane.Key matchup: Sergio Parisse vs Steven LuatuaOne shudders at the thought of just where Italy would be at Test level had it not been for veteran skipper Sergio Parisse. The Italian No.8 has led his country with distinction for the best part of a decade and is one of their few genuine world-class players. While he is prone to trying to do too much to get his side over the line, Parisse does possess a wonderful skill set and anticipates the game superbly. At 33 years of age, Parisse might be coming to the end of his career. But there can be no doubting Parisses pride in the IItalian jersey and he is sure to savour what may be his final Test against the All Blacks. New York Rangers Jerseys. Steven Luatua is named to make his first Test start in more than two years, since the defeat to South Africa in Johannesburg in October 2014. He was dropped to gain strength and conditioning, and was then omitted from consideration due to injury and lost form. He now has an opportunity to impose himself as a replacement for the rested Kieran Read and Jerome Kaino, with Steve Hansen giving him a remit in an inexperienced backrow to be really physical and show us that he can do that job at this level of rugby. Fair to say this might be his last Test if he doesnt impress.Key stats- Italy have never beaten the All Blacks- New Zealand last lost back-to-back Tests in 2011- Sergio Parisse will break Martin Castrogiovannis Italian record for Test caps when he plays his 119th match this weekendWeatherRome is expecting a mostly sunny day on Saturday. There is next to no chance of rain, giving the players cool, but firm conditions for rugby.What they saidI would be delusional to say ... do you go out to every game and say you are going to win? Yes, you have to go out with that attitude. They are the best team in the world, they still are. Ireland havent overtaken them. They are on the way and now they have mental belief. Italy coach Conor OShea.The Irish probably found us a bit predictable, too. We struggled early in terms of ball supply and werent able to paint some pictures that we needed to paint. So when we did get the ball, eventually, we did become predictable. All Blacks assistant Ian Foster.VerdictItaly coach Conor OShea is right to go out with the attitude that his side can win; otherwise whats the point in turning up? But he will no doubt settle for a strong showing that limits the pain many think the All Blacks will inflict on the Azzurri this weekend. Italy enjoyed some success against the All Blacks through a dominant scrum in Milan a few years back and they will be banking on a similar set-piece showing to keep the scoreline respectable. The All Blacks, on the other hand, will want to run up a score, but more important will be the nature of their execution and discipline. After last weeks shock loss, anything other than perfection in Rome will leave All Blacks fans unhappy. Expect their supporters to be smiling come Sunday.New Zealand by 35.
