Beasties twins Daniel and James Donato set sights on Italy and RWC 2023

By MARK CASHMAN

Twins have a certain way of doing things, - you know the drill finishing off answers to questions for each other and wearing the same T-shirt even though one side of the “team” had no prior knowledge of the fashion standards of the day.

So it’s no surprise that Eastern Suburbs duo Daniel and James Donato have taken up an opportunity to continue their rugby careers in Italy - together.

The fraternal twins will head to Rome and link with the Lazio club, the same club where Warringah’s Hugh Margin is off to at the end of the month, with the aim of playing for Italy at the Rugby World Cup in France in 2023.

When Rugby News rang the 23-year-olds, they were waiting outside the Italian Consulate in Sydney for their passports and dual citizenship to be processed.
