Biography[edit]

Favaro, the son of former Italy lock Roberto Favaro, began his career playing for the Treviso under-19 team before stepping up to the Super 10 with Rovigo and Overmach Parma.[1] Favaro was an early developer and, at the age of 20, was the youngest player included in Nick Mallett's squad for the 2009 Six Nations Championship.[3] Favaro did not feature in the Championship; he subsequently made his debut against Australia in the 2009 Summer tour of the Southern Hemisphere.[2] In June 2010 he joined Aironi for their first season in the Magners League.[4]
