Italy v Argentina (8-0-review)


ITALY 15-31 ARGENTINA

Conor O’Shea’s men were left flustered in Florence after their pack dominated in scrums and mauls yet somehow couldn’t break scrambling defenders for a try.  Meanwhile Sanchez’ boot kept the Pumas close, they looked lively out wide and some pretty average Italian first-up tackling was punished with three tries including two in the last eleven minutes.  Ref Peyper awarded 22 combined penalties though no cards.  Ireland will need to be on top form against their World Cup nemesis next Saturday.
