Scots Sneak Home In Rome
Written by RockSport on March 16, 2018
Greig Laidlaw’s 79th-minute Scotland penalty denied Italy their first Six Nations victory since 2015 in Rome.
Tommaso Allan had booted Italy ahead in a dramatic final 10 minutes, before Laidlaw’s decisive strike.
Former Scotland Under-20 fly-half Allan contributed 22 points, including a try in each half, and also set up Matteo Minozzi to touch down.
Fraser Brown, John Barclay, Sean Maitland and Stuart Hogg scored for the Scots, who earned a try bonus point.
