Scrum issues and penalty to Italy

Parisse points to posts...

Carlo Canna near miss. Score remains the same. Five kicks only one successful by both teams. A swirling 40kt breeze is effecting the easy points

French defence and discipline is poor as well.
Very windy out there, might explain (not excuse) both kickers failures.

I guess mon Noves can only do so much in two weeks. Maybe defensive skills are in next weeks class?

Wow we are very lucky there. Campagnoro just a few cms away from the try line. He's having a field day in the midfield. Danty and fickou are really weak defensively today.

Maybe but France look the more accomplished team.

Italians have a great game one to ten but outside backs look iffy.  France look like a good team getting to know each other.

Pilson at flyhalf for France looks like a poor selection

Shows that putting up an entirely new backline with only 2-3 players that ever played together has his limits.
Hope it can only improve but you can understand Irish and English selections that didn't change much their backs.

Italy are doing realy,realy well. Too be honest they are domning better than i thought they would be at this point.

If there goal kicker had kicked, his goals they would be in front by now.

Are we in for the first shock of the 6ns Italy beating France in France.

Looking forward to the 2nd half thats for sure.

Great work on the blind side by Italy and Carlo Canna goes over..!

10-16 France haven't touched the ball yet and Italy are taking advantage of possession well.

France get the lineout and first possession of the second half. Win a penalty for Italy not releasing, Paulson hammers the ball down the touch line and France double the weight of their pack by bribing on Antonio

Good tactical management by the Italians. French have had so little procession. If they are to get back into the match they will need some urgency and sustained possession.

Italy seem to have the better set piece...

Great defence of their narrow one point lead by the Italians.

France need to learn how to throw and catch a pass under pressure a bit better.

I agree.

There is a great team hidden in there somewhere. Fair play though Italy have no rolled over and have played some very good rugby.

They might even re-take the lead here after another breakdown penalty.

Referee has not been great, especially around the breakdown.

Parisse is right, initial offence was by the French tackler.

Unfortunately that refereeing mistake has resulted in France taking the lead again.

Great penalty from Plisson but I think the ref got the call wrong, that was a pen to Italy for a high tackle
