  • ITALY 10-39 SAMOA

    Full time
  • That's it! Italy can't find a way past the Samoan defence. Samoa are full value for an impressive win. They'll face the Springboks next week. Thanks for joining us, Cheers!

  • Italy have one last fling after winning a penalty (again) from a scrum. They're stuck on the edge on the Samoan 22.

  • Alesana Tuilagi has a rare chance to run out wide. He's been very quiet today. Samoa are throwing it around looking for another try. Italy just trying to shut it down and get to full time.


  • TRY, SAMOA, VA'AULA. 10-37. Oh, it's turning into a rout. Ki Anufe starts the counter attack from inside his own half before offloading to Brando Va'aulu for an easy try.

  • CONVERSION, DI BERNADO. 10-32. Easy extras

  • PENALTY TRY, ITALY!!!! 8-32. A huge scrum marches the Samaons back and Parisse is about to flop over when Tuifua breaks off early and kicks the ball away. Easy decision for referee Craig Joubert.

  • YELLOW CARD, SAMOA, LEIUA. Samoa go a man down as the pay the price for killing the ball right on their line.

  • This is much better from Italy as some straight running and well-timed passes takes them right up to the Samoan try line. They're laying siege...

  • There is a real lack of a sense of urgency from Italy. You could argue that the game is as good as over, but they haven't matched the Samoans' intensity all game.

  • CONVERSION, WILLIAMS. 3-32. The Italians can feel a bit aggrieved by that TMO decision, which was dubious to say the least. Avei's foot looked to have touched the line.

  • Try for Taiasina Tuifua?? Some great offloading from the Samoans. Ole Avei offloads in the tackle from Parisse but was he out before releasing the ball to Taiasina Tuifua? The TMO will decide. The TMO says yes! TRY, SAMOA, TUIFUA! 3-30.

  • Di Bernardo kicks for touch from the penalty but Samoa steal the line-out. Not much going right for the Italians at the moment.

  • Whoa! Logovii Mulipola comes off the Samoan bench and into the front row at loosehead and is immediately driven back at scrum time and concedes a penalty.

  • Samoa still in control, keeping it a bit tighter though as they look to manage the last quarter.

  • CONVERSION, WILLIAMS. 3-25. Game over, surely.

  • TRY, SAMOA, LEOTA. 3-23. Italy punished again for an error with a long-range try. A split ball sees Pisi step Castro inside his own 22 and start the attack. Some slick handling puts Johnny Leota away and the centre sprints home from half way.

  • PENALTY, SAMOA, WILLIAMS. 3-18. Great kick from the centre, who splits the uprights from 50m out.

  • A worry for the Italians as Parisse takes a knock to the head but he eventually gets up, looking a bit groggy. A patient build up from Samoa ends in Castrogiovanni penalised on the deck.
