Scotland crushes Italy for first Six Nations win

Video by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2009-03-01

Scotland recorded a 26-6 win in Edinburgh over an inferior Italian side to secure its first win in this year's Six Nations.Sitting at the bottom of the championship, Italy will next play Wales, one of the favourites.

AFP - Scotland virtually condemned Italy to the Six Nations wooden spoon here at Murrayfield on Saturday with a 26-6 win which also eased the pressure on coach Frank Hadden.
  
Tries by man of the match Simon Danielli, his first in five years, and Scott Gray ensured the home side enjoyed a relatively easy victory and halted a run of two successive Six Nations defeats by Italy.
  
Danielli, who has endured several years of injuries but has rediscovered his form with Ulster, said it was great to end his try drought.
  
"It's not a great statistic is it?" I have had a run of injuries and one thing we have had is strength in depth in the back three," said Danielli.
  
"I think we fully deserved the win. We at last were allowed some space to run the ball and we showed we had the capability to do something with the ball."
  
Scotland next play Ireland while Italy play Wales.
