Nicolas Zisti (born 2 August 1972 in Sydney, New South Wales)[2] is an Italian Australian former rugby league and rugby union player. His position of choice is winger although he can also play as a centre.

Playing career

Nick Zisti began his professional career playing for South Sydney Rabbitohs where he made 6 appearances off the bench between 1991 and 1993, scoring no points.[1]

From there he went on to play for St. George Dragons where he scored 19 tries in 18 games for the Dragons between 1994-96.[1] He scored the Dragons only try in their 1996 20-8 Grand Final defeat to Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.

He signed for the Hunter Mariners in 1997 and only played one season at the club playing 16 games, scoring 9 tries and kicking 20 goals.[1] He is the Mariners leading scorer in what was their only season. He set numerous records for the club including most tries, goals, points in a match and most points in a season.

Following the club's demise, he moved to Cronulla Sharks where he played 9 games scoring 4 tries in the season of 1998.[1] After spending all of his career in Australia he decided to move to England to play in the Super League club Bradford Bulls.

In October 1999 he made his international debut for the Italy national rugby union team in a World Cup match against England national rugby union team.

In 1999 he signed a 3-years agreement with Rugby Roma Olimpic, a rugby union team from Rome, Italy. He won the Italian championship in 2000. He won his last international cap for Italy during the 2000 Six Nations vs. France.

In December 2001, because of Rugby Roma's financial problems, he asked to be let free and flew back to Australia.
