Parisse breaks 6-Nations appearance record

Italy skipper Parisse breaks Six Nations appearance record

Sergio Parisse has broken the record for the most Six Nations appearances after leading out Italy for their clash with Scotland.

Parisse, 35, surpassed Brian O’Driscoll’s tally of 65 Six Nations caps at Murrayfield on Saturday in his country’s first match of the 2019 tournament – and has started in each of his 66 outings.

Italy’s skipper now boasts 135 caps in all, having made his Test debut back in 2002.

The veteran number eight’s first Six Nations appearance came two years later against England.

Parisse has been on the losing side in 100 Tests to date, but he has been Italy’s standout player during his career and remains a key figure under Conor O’Shea.
