Terry Campese bounced back from Hull KR's relegation from Super League to mastermind Italy's 62-14 win over Serbia in Belgrade which ended the Serbs' hopes of qualifying for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Former Canberra NRL skipper Campese, who has left Hull KR to rejoin his junior Australian club Queanbeyan Blues, made an impressive belated debut for the Azzurri.

The 32-year-old helped create a hat-trick of tries for winger Richard Lepori inside the opening 12 minutes and going over himself from a quickly-taken tap penalty just before the hour.

Rugby union international and centre Mirco Bergamasco, also making his international league bow, kicked seven goals from 11 attempts for the Italians, who face Wales next Saturday in a pool A decider in Monza.
