Zebre upset Ospreys with dramatic last gasp try in PRO12 clash

Italian team Zebre beat Welsh side Ospreys with a dramatic finale to their RaboDirect PRO12 match last night. Guglielmo Palazzani's late try helped them claim a famous 30-27 victory at home. The win is their second in succession for the first time this season, following their defeat of Edinburgh.

The last gasp try helped Zebre to move above Treviso on the Pro 12 standings, and give the loyal home support something to cheer about after having trailed 27-16 at one point in the match.

Tries were scored for Zebre by Giovanbattista Venditti, Brendan Leonard and Palazzani.

No surprise that Peter Fitzgibbon gave that try. League plagued by woeful refs (bar N Owens) good work from Zebre to get in that position and an amazing result for them to hopefully finish as top Italian team.... but you cant tell someone to leave them and then let them run at them again to score..

Why not? Under what rule?
Don't know? That's because it is totally legal.
Defending player was offside. Advantage played and there was nobody behind him. He could have taken the scrum half out and gotten a yellow but he didn't.
Totally clear try.

Easiest run in ever for the last few games, all they had to do was win and they still blew it
