|Toni Rossi was an Italian second row forward who played two matches for the Saints in August 1961 against Liverpool City and Swinton. |
Toni Danieli first used the name Toni Rossi to see if he would make the grade in the superior code, when he switched from Italia RU to Blackpool Borough.After his time at Knowsley Road Toni moved over the Lump to play for Wigan.
Once finishing his RL career returned to Italy and set up team Frigomar Padova and later spent time with Venezia Mestre.
Toni Danieli was extremely proud of playing Rugby League and returned to this country to live the rest of his life in Cornwall.
It is a big pity that Rugby League was lost in Italy after the sixties decade. At one stage there were over twenty teams competing in the North of Italy.
