There are good signs for the Italian men’s team of the future as their under 20’s pull off a shock upset over England.
In what was a damp and low scoring affair, the Italians put on some brave defence to keep the English scoreless. This marks the Italians first win over the English at the under 20 level in their history.
Young Italian fly half Nicolo Teneggi kicked two penalties, one in the first half and one in the second half, to beat England 6 – 0. Worrying signs for a young English team unable to get a point on the board. Find the highlights of the match below.
The Italian team has done well to bounce back from a heavy defeat to France last week. They will be looking to continue this form into their next match against the Irish under 20s.
Meanwhile, the English squad will be desperately hoping to turn things around in their next match against Wales in a week’s time.
