World Cup: Italrugby first suffers and then overwhelms Uruguay

Italy beat Uruguay 38-17 in the Rugby World Cup match played today in Nice. With this success the Azzurri are assured of placing minimum third in their group and thus also qualifying for the next edition of the World Cup, those of 2027 in Australia.

Yet, after Pani’s initial goal on 7’ converted by Alan, things for Crowley’s Azzurri had certainly not continued well: the South Americans on 27’ scored a penalty goal after yellow cards to Niccolò Cannone and Fischetti, then on 37’ new goal by Freitas converted by Etcheverry who then è scored with a drop in the recovery of the first half, which closed on 17-7 for our opponents.

In the second half, after a yellow to Vilaseca that deprived Uruguay of its captain, Italy went wild with four goals, all converted by Allan: at 46’ Lamaro, at 52’ Ioane, at 56’ Lorenzo Cannone and at 61’ Brex. Finally, at 70’ a spot kick by Garbisi set the score at 38-17 final. The next engagement for the Azzurri, the third match in Group A, will be Friday, Sept. 29 against the All Blacks of New Zealand.
