|Rugby union career|
His parents originated from Mauritius.
He went on to play in Wales with Bangor and Llanelli and Super 12 with the Blue Bulls and Sharks. He moved to Italy originally to play for Overmach Parma for the 2000-2001 season. Roland joined Leeds Tykes for the 2005/6 season.
Roland opted to play international rugby union for Italy, qualifying for them after playing there for more than five years in the domestic league. He made his Azzurri debut as a replacement in the 2004 Six Nations against the then newly crowned World Champions England. He followed this up in the following week when he made his first start against France in Paris and was part of the side which beat Scotland in Rome that season. Roland scored Italy's last gasp try that ultimately denied Ireland their first 6 Nations triumph.
His brother Marc de Marigny is a South Africa national rugby union team sevens player and has previously captained the SA sevens side.
