Although Sole's family is Italian, he was born in Hamilton, New Zealand and is one of a host of foreign-raised players representing the Azzurri. Joined Italian Super 10 side Viadana in 2004 and just a year later had been drafted into the national team set-up, making his debut against Argentina in the summer of 2005. Capable of playing effectively in either the second row or in the back row, Sole showed he also has the ability to put points on the board with a brace of tries in November's Test win against Tongo.
