Auckland born winger Kaine Robertson made his Italy debut against Romania in 2004 after moving to the country at the age of 18.
His pace and power made him an immediate hit with his club side Viadana, and after scoring a try on debut he has gone on to amass 36 caps for the Azzurri.
He made his Six Nations debut as a replacement against Ireland in 2005, but it was in 2007 that he had his finest moment in an Italy shirt. Robertson scored one of Italy's four tries against Scotland at Murrayfield to secure a record-breaking away win.
He was then selected by Italy boss Pierre Berbizier for Italy's 2007 World Cup squad, playing in three matches as the Azzurri crashed out at the group stages.
Robertson was back in action for the 2008 Six Nations, playing in four of five Tests before touring Argentina and South Africa in the summer. He then featured in all three of Italy's autumn internationals as they went down to Australia, Argentina and the Pacific Islands.
