More Scotland TMO drama…

The TMO advises our referee to overturn the try. The referee decides to stick with his on-field decision.

Scotland can feel hard done by there; does that feel familiar?

TMO review

Hold on…

Was Gritti allowed to play that ball?

He would have to be the last man in the ruck when he picked it up, but it looks like someone may have been behind him.

50

Not rolling

Ventisei penalised for not rolling.

Italy kick into our 22.

47

Gwynn saves us

50

Scrum penalty for Scotland!

41

Second half starts!

COME ON SCOTLAND!

HT

Teams return

Isaac Coates will soon get us back underway.

47

Italy scrum

Italy on the attack there, but the play comes too close to an injured player and physio and the referee eventually stops it.

We’ll continue with an Italy midfield scrum inside our 22.

44

Italy scrum after kicking battle

Both teams going for a max of a two phases for a couple of minutes there, before Scotland eventually win one of their own box kicks.

But it’s Italy who get the scrum, as Douglas is held up and a maul is created before the ball gets trapped.

The scrum is on halfway, on our right wing.

HT

Half time sub

Fergus Watson won’t come out for the second half, as the tryscorer picked up a knock.

He’ll be replaced by Johnny Ventisei, with Georgie Gwynn moving out to the wing and Ventisei slotting into the centre.

Half time

A few uneventful phases from Scotland, and Coates decides enough is enough.

Eu can’t stop McVie

Hector Patterson’s charge down put the first Scotland try on a plate for Euan McVie.

McVie, Hart, Thomson, Doyle, Patterson and more certainly enjoyed it!

We’ll get the scrum put-in just inside our 10.

Gywnn boots downfield, and Italy return it.

Coates gathers, but he’s smothered up and holds onto the ball at the breakdown.

Italy kick it into our left corner.

28

Wat did we just see?!?!

We take the lead!

Some excellent hands down the left side as Thomson finds Fergus Watson on the left wing, and he races into the corner!

Another excellent Coates conversion. 7-14.

23

Penalty!

Italy’s forward make the inches and get so close, but a sealing off penalty two metres out saves our skins!

Coates exits to around 25m from our line.

25

Another penalty

A kick from each side and Patterson fancies a run.

We get penalty advantage from an illegal tackle, and the ball goes out to the right. But Thomson’s kick through goes straight out, and we go back for the penalty.

20

Knock on

They exit to just outside their 10.

18

MCVIE TAKES THE BISCUIT!!!

Italy make a mess after the lineout and Scotland dive on a loose ball. Coates then knocks a kick over the top of the Italian defence into the right corner.

It’s gathered by the home side, but Jimenez’s box kick is charged down by Patterson, and Euan McVie dives on it and slides over in the corner!

An excellent conversion from Coates. 7-7.

 

12

Out on the full again

A second kick out on the full from Patterson, and Italy have the lineout just inside their 10.

First penalty Italy

Italy wrestle forward phase by phase, and then Scotland concede the first penalty of the night.

Italy kick it into the left corner.

15

Good play!

Straight out

Tom Currie carries from the base of the scrum, then Hector Patterson fires up a box kick. But it’s gone straight out, and Italy will have the lineout on our 10.

First try Italy

We defend the maul well after the lineout, but Italy’s forwards inch towards the line and Piero Gritti gets under the posts.
