Italy’s Ange Capuzzo (23, 7 caps) won the Male Revelation of the Year title at the World Rugby Awards 2022 ceremony this Sunday. On his part, Henry Arundel (England), Mack Hansen (Ireland) and Dan Sheehan (Ireland) were also nominated in this category.

The young fullback has been one of the revelations of the last 6 Nations tournament, having made his Grenoble debut in the Pro D2. Against Wales, he was the author of personal exploits. With the Italians trailing 21-15 in Cardiff with just 1.3 minutes to play, Ange Kapuso slipped through the Welsh defense and dropped three defenders to launch from midfield. After a breakthrough from 50 metres, he served Edoardo Padovani who scored the winning try, converting at the feet of Paolo Garbisi (21-22). Squadra Azura signed their first victory in the tournament since 2015 and their first prestigious victory.
