Benetton Rugby: Ones to Watch

Benetton Rugby: Ones to Watch

As the boys prepare to face Benetton in the BKT URC, we took a look at some of their dangermen to prepare you for the game.

From a South African utility back to an England star’s brother, here is this week’s Ones to Watch.


Rhyno Smith

The South African has been coming up big for Benetton when they need him the most this year. The utility back came up with a monstrous performance against Zebre in December and also slotted through a kick to win against Ulster in January. Smith’s unique qualities allow him to play across the back three and at fly half.

Marco Zanon

Zanon has been a dangerman in the centre for Benetton this year and is no stranger to a try. In fact, the Italian has scored in each of his last three appearances for Benetton and always poses a threat when close to the line.

Marcus Watson

An England 7s international, Watson’s ability to make an impact in the open field perfectly complements Benetton’s expressive playstyle. Marcus is the brother of England star, Anthony Watson, and is a versatile player with great footwork and the ability to finish.
