Cap­tain Ser­gio Parisse will fi­nally join Italy’s World Cup camp to­day. The num­ber eight has missed his team’s open­ing two matches af­ter suf­fer­ing an in­jury to his calf. The 32-year-old had re­mained with club side Stade Fran­cais in Paris to be given ex­ten­sive treat­ment on the in­jury, but was ruled fit enough to travel to Eng­land yesterday. Parisse will now hope to com­plete his re­cov­ery in time to face Ire­land in Sun­day’s piv­otal Pool D bat­tle at the Olympic Sta­dium.
