George Biagi (born 4 October 1985 in Irvine, Scotland) is an Italy international rugby union player who plays club rugby for Zebre. He was born in Scotland to Scots/Italian father and an Italian mother and later went to Italy to study. He has stated he has equal allegiance to both countries.[1][2]

Biagi started playing rugby at the age of 13 at Fettes College, Edinburgh. He attended Bocconi University in Milan and started playing with Grande Milano; the following year he moved to Amatori Milano. He was signed by Cavalieri Prato with whom he got promoted to Super 10 (now Top12) and qualified for the European Amlin Challenge Cup. He subsequently transferred to Aironi where he played since the 2010/2011 season, in the Pro12 and the Heineken Cup.[3] In June 2012 he signed for Bristol Rugby[4] but in the summer of 2013, Biagi returned to Italy to join the new franchise Zebre in the Pro12.
