Scotland see off Italy in final warm-up match at Murrayfield

Scotland see off Italy in final warm-up match at Murrayfield

Scotland are in good spirits following their 23-12 win over a strong Italy team at Murrayfield on Saturday. Scotland scored two tries, but it was Italy that scored the try of the match. You can see all the tries in the video below.

Scotland fielded a side that wasn't at full strength, so will be encouraged by the win, and particularly the form of flyhalf Dan Parks. They still have some way to go though to reach their best before their first match of the Rugby World Cup on September 10th, again Romania.

Coach Andy Robinson still felt they could have played better however, saying that he was frustrated that they didn't score more points with the possession and chances they had.

"That's the mentality, the skill level, the decision-making we've got to be able to find. We are working hard to create opportunities -- it's now about really nailing them," he said.

Italy produced a lovely try that included two neat inside flicks and a very good finish from flying winger Tommaso Benvenuti, but there was a sad moment late in the game as big Nikki Walker injured his knee in contact, so won't be on the plane to New Zealand with the rest of the squad.
