You can't have been watching rugby that long to think Italy haven't improved. Since joining the 6 nations they've made an observable improvement each year. The very fact that they're able to compete and in some cases dominate in the forwards is a marker of how much progress they've made. Their backs are weak, but McLean is a good prospect and with time more Italian backs will make their way into the better leagues. It all filters down.
