Goals in the match and disappointment after the final whistle for the Azzurri
Monty Ioan’s attempt was not enough, spiced with glasses at the foot of the exact Tommaso Allan. Kieran Crowley’s Azzurri surrendered to Scotland, who reduced the lead in the last minute, widening the gap with Josh Baylis’ attempt to make it 25-13.
But Italy has already been hit twice during the match by Darcy Graham, a real thorn in his side in attack; Ben Healy did the rest, masterfully orchestrating the Scottish impulses and using his foot decisively with his long distance.

It should also be noted that the stages of the conquest of the Azzurri broke down at times, the touches were not always coordinated in the best way, and the fight in the second half ended with great difficulty.
