    They're doing ok so far...it's the last 20 mins when they tend to lose their way and fall off the pace.

    Nice!

    Some great ruck clearouts in the build up to that try.


  • Moderators, Education Moderators Posts: 26,321 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Peregrine


    17-5 is a great lead but Italy can leak tries if Scotland get the ball back.


  • Registered Users Posts: 837 ✭✭✭ Subpopulus


    That Minozzi try is my favourite of the championship. Relentless pressure, going through the phases, and then a risky kick through to take the try. Great stuff.

    That gold number on the Italian jersey is hard to see at times!

    Decent driving maul by Scotland there

    Is it just me or are Italy being ripped off by the ref? Scotland hand on the ground at the ruck when Italy won the Scotland lineout, then static maul for 10 seconds and never said "that's once" or "use it".

    That penalty could have been given for a couple of things, given for Scotland holding on, but also a Scottish player came in from the side. Excellent try line defense by the Italians

    Scotland think there world beaters after beating England now they can’t back it up.

    Italy high temp when attacking


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,269 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Italy butchered a certain try.

    Pass the ball to your best back you muppets.

    The pace they were coming onto the ball following that line out was incredible.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Couple of Italians with white line fever there, cost their team a try maybe twice.

    Power of home advantage

    Italy butchered a try there by going to the maul - was definite gaps being created in the Scottish defense

    they just needed a strike runner to hit the line

    Honestly, I think that it's just naivety that they have as a whole but it looks like they are having it hard at match time.

    Whoop, despite Parisse trying to butcher it again.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 1,480 ✭✭✭ bloodless_coup

    Itlay had to be smarter there, take the conversion as quick as possible. Bad captaincy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 837 ✭✭✭ Subpopulus


    Parisse is starting to become a bit of a liabilty. That's the same overcut pass that he threw last week to fluff an otherwise excellent attacking move.


  • Moderators, Education Moderators, Sports Moderators, Regional South Moderators Posts: 15,201 Mod ✭✭✭✭ rebel girl 15


    Argh Parisse! Butchered that - after a great try by Negri


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 1,480 ✭✭✭ bloodless_coup

    and we were worried about Scotland this time last week ??


  • Moderators, Education Moderators, Sports Moderators, Regional South Moderators Posts: 15,201 Mod ✭✭✭✭ rebel girl 15


    Great break up the middle! Nice try - poor minding of the ball by Scotland

    To be fair when they're confident they're very potent, but they get deflated and ragged so easily.
