Six Nations: Scotland suffer but win against Italy


The XV of Thistle hardly beat Italy (26-14) at Murrayfield for its last match in the Six Nations Tournament.

The outcome was predictable.

This Saturday at Murrayfield, Italy was beaten by Scotland (26-14) and finished in last place in the standings without any victory on the clock.

La Nazionale therefore harvests the 12th wooden spoon in its history and a seventh in a row.

The Scots, beaten by the Blues (32-21) and by Ireland the previous week (722), finished on a good note.

Despite the absences of Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg, Blair Kinghorn's teammates (author of 21 points today) should retain their 3rd place at the end of this last day.

Italy camps but does not materialize

The Italians pushed the Scots to the fault at the start of the game.

Despite Allan's first failure against the poles (4th), the future USAP player set the sights three minutes later.

But the XV du Chardon reacted by following.

On his wing and well offset by Jones, the colossus van der Merwe flies away at the end of the line to register the first try of the meeting (12th).

A test that will not be transformed by Kinghorn.

On dismissal, Dempsey was also penalized.

Allan investigates and allowed his people to pass in front.

For nearly 15 minutes, the Scots laid siege to the Italian camp.

After having stumbled on the Transalpine defense for a long time, Kinghorn – a perfect replacement for Russell – broke tackles from Fusco and Lamaro to score Scotland's second try (30th).

The latter also missed a last trial action at the end.

(12-6 at the break).

The Italians were penalized from the restart and conceded a new try.

Kinghorn again scored his second personal try.

Served by White on the closed, he resisted the tackles of Negri and Brex to allow his people to make the break (44th, 19-6).

The match will then fall into a false rhythm where clumsiness spoils actions.

The entries of Paolo Garbisi's younger brother, Alessandro, but also those of Zuliani and Ceccarelli will allow Italy to return.

Paolo Garbisi is served on the closed and hits a low kick to follow.

Allan retrieved the leather and flattened it.

However, he failed to convert (63rd, 19-11).

Three minutes later, the opener Garbisi added three new points (19-14).

The match was then completely restarted and the Scots stammered their rugby.

At the end of an unbearable end to the match and despite the last battering of the Transalpins, the Scots scored a last try from 100 meters by this devil of Kinghorn and imposed themselves laboriously but with the offensive bonus.
