RaboDirect PRO12 side Treviso have bolstered their side with 13 fresh faces ahead of next season.
The majority of their new recruits have come from Aironi - who have been replaced by Zebre in this year's PRO12 - while they have also turned to Super Rugby. The most eye-catching of the new signings is arguably the Lions' Doppies La Grange.
But the bulk of their new players are Italians with current internationals Alberto de Marchi, Simone Favaro and Giulio Toniolatti all making the switch to Treviso with Michele Campagnaro, Angelo Esposito (Tarvisium), Marco Fuser (Mogliano), Giovanni Maistri (Calvisano) and Luca Morisi (Crociati) also joining.
Alongside La Grange, they have also bought in Bees Roux from Bordeaux, James Ambrosini from Queensland A, Dean Budd from the Green Rockets and Christian Loamanu from Toulon.
