Italy score late penalty try to upset Scotland at Murrayfield

first_imgSunday Mar 1, 2015 Italy score late penalty try to upset Scotland at Murrayfield Italy’s captain Sergio Parisse has praised his team’s courage for hanging in and battling it out to a 22-19 away victory over Scotland on Saturday. It was their first win in the Six Nations since 2013, and just their second ever win away from home since joining. A year ago Scotland came out on top with a last-gasp Duncan Weir drop goal in Rome, so Parisse, who played a big part in the driving maul that led to the winning penalty try, admitted that revenge was sweet this time around. “It is special. It is fantastic for the team. We lost last time in Rome with a last-minute drop goal so we are really happy with the result and this victory will give some confidence for the team going into the next match in Rome,” the skipper said. “It was a great victory. We had a lot of young guys, especially in the backs and two uncapped boys in the group. We have done a lot of hard work in the week so I am really happy with the result.”Fullback Like McLean was named Man of the Match, but paid tribute to the forwards for their effort. “It has been a long couple of years with Italy. We have had a couple of tough losses against Scotland in the last two years so it is good to get the other side of the result,” McLean said.“Our forwards really set the platform today, we scored a try off a really good maul in the first half and full credit to them they came out and really stood up for us. A win is tough enough but to win away it is a good thing and we will look to the next two games at home and try and push on from there.”Scotland coach Vern Cotter said that his side should be winning the tight matches.“We’ve got two more games and there are things that we need to do to perhaps give us more composure and enable us to finish and close out games. I still think there’s a lot of growth, things have gone forward,” the New Zealander said.“We’ve just got to address a couple of simple things that will have us change and control outcomes better and those are things we’ll have a look at internally.”Quick highlights wrap below, with more clips and extended highlights to follow soon.
