Victory has arrived. Women’s Italy, with Como’s Maria Magatti as the starting winger for all eighty minutes, beat Scotland to a score of 20–13 at Lanfranchi di Parma on the fourth day of the Six Nations. After the first half closed 3-10 behind, the second half saw a breakthrough. The four points pocketed (the attacking bonus was missing) allows Blue to drop last in the standings, just ahead of the Scots, still two.
Next Saturday the tournament will conclude with an away match against Wales. The match in Parma didn’t start in the best way as the Scots opened the scoresheet in an hour’s time. The goal of the guests in the final raised concerns.
Italy, however, returned to the field for the second half, radically changed and determined to reverse the trend of contention. Thanks to the successful operation and the goals of Betoni and Sillari and the appointment of Sillari, fifteen of coach Andrea di Giandomenico flew 20–10. The placement of the guests in the final was used for statistics only.
Great satisfaction among Italians, strongly desired and pursued victory even in difficult moments. The only drawback, a little bit of indiscipline, which gave the guests too many places, which could have compromised the final result. Magatti reported attendance number 42 in the national team, becoming one of the team’s “veterans”. An essential point of reference for the game economy in blue.
