Biography[edit]

Favaro, the son of former Italy lock Roberto Favaro, started playing rugby aged nine while living in Zero Branco, on the advice of a family friend. He 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] On 18 February 2015 it was announced that Favaro would sign for the Scottish side Glasgow Warriors for the 2015–16 season in the summer of 2015. Favaro has signed until May 2017.[5]
