It has been quite a week for the Italian side in Rugby! On the 10th of March, Italy put up a great fight against England, but ultimately they lost by a score of 18 to 11. Then, on the 16th of March, Italy beat Ireland at the Olimpico stadium to put the Italian side in good stead to advance in the Six Nations cup.
Here is my translation of the introduction to the article in IlSole24Ore in Italian:
ROME – It ends with laps of honor, noise, tears and chants. It ends with Italy at the Olimpico stadium having beat Ireland (after France) with a score of 22-15, 9-6 in the first half – and leaving both of the other teams behind in the final standings. The fourth place is now essentially assured, equaling the best finish ever for Italy in the Six Nations (2007).
Here is a summary of the goals from the match on the 16th between Italy and Ireland from an article in English:
§ Italy: Venditti, Penalty goals: Orquera (4), Garcia, Conversions: Orquera
§ Ireland: Penalty goals: Jackson (5)
