The 21-year-old playmaker, capped 10 times by Italy, has been the preferred No.10 for his national side in the last two Six Nations tournaments.

Montpellier coach Philippe Saint-Andre said Garbisi had been the “best Italian player in the last Six Nations”.

Saint-Andre said Garbisi’s ability to play across the backline, aligned with his proficiency as a goalkicker, meant he was the perfect replacement after the departure of Alex Lozowski and Johan Goosen.
