In Group B of the Autumn Nations Cup, Scotland hardly defeated Italy (28-17) in Florence. The win allows him to approach his match against the Blues the next Sunday in the best way.
After canceling France’s XV match against Fiji, it was necessary to turn to Artemio-Franchi Stadium this Saturday to participate in the first meeting in the Group B game of the Autumn Cup. On the lawn of the usual Fiorentina playing field, Italy tried to end a five-year streak without a win against their opponent of the day, welcoming Scotland. The match started well for Squadra Azura, who took a 6–0 lead in the first half due to two kicks from her young opener Paolo Garbisi (20). The Scottish response was not long in coming. Thanks to a try (23rd minute) from his three-quarter wing, Duhan van der Merwe, his second in three matches, and a change of Duncan Weir, XV du Chardon controlled the scoreboard for the first time. Of the meeting. The test provoked a new reaction, this time Italian. In the next minute, Matteo Minozzi took a good collective action on the left. Garbisi then got his first failure, sending the ball of change into the post.

Decisive end of match for Scotland
However, the Italian striker redeemed himself at the start of the second act by converting a new penalty. Seven steps ahead at the start of the second period, Italy rested again. The first booster shot (45th minute) with a Scottish try refused to lead. The second inning in the in-goal was right (48th minute). Zander Fagerson received the ball near the posts and took advantage of the incomparable inaction of the Italian group to go quietly flat. The Glasgow Warriors mainstay was surprised to be able to get itself into the end zone so easily. Since the beginning of this protest, Thistle XV was unable to function, but was excellent in response. So it was not until a new Italian penalty, by Garbissi, through Greg Cummings (66th minute) to see Greg Tonavend’s players decisive third try. Italy were no longer dangerous and won a final try (George Turner, 77th minute) by Duncan Wier converted to total leg success (4/4). Lead by Unilateral game ends, Italy may regret having dominated the debate for a long time as it eventually loses against Scotland (28–17).
