9 mins. Dupont has a dart left off the back of a big French maul in the Italy half. It looks like he’s running up a blind alley, but somehow he as usual makes some thing out of it, throwing a pass back inside that launches some forward phases. The attacks fizzles out due to some good breakdown work from Italy.
This game really hard enough for Italy without attempting laboured kicks with nobody guarding around the ruck. The frustrating thing is the home side have looked good when in possession.
