Italy will host world champions South Africa in a test match in Udine in the north-east of the country on November 21, the Italian Rugby Federation said on Wednesday.

The match was due to take place in Florence but clashed with the Serie A Football game between Fiorentina and Parma.

It was also due to take place at the Artemio-Franchi stadium just three days before Fiorentina’s Champions League clash against Lyon and there were fears the pitch would not have time to recover from the rigours of a rugby match.
