WATCH: Italy Stun Ireland With Controversial Try To Lead At Half-Time In Rome


Italy have stunned Ireland in Rome, taking a 16-12 lead in at half-time at the Stadio Olimpico thanks to tries from Padovani and Morisi.

Ireland took the lead early on thanks to a try from Connacht lock Quinn Roux, before Jacob Stockdale added a second not long after, following a disastrous Italian mistake from the kick-off.

But Conor O’Shea’s men didn’t give up and now have a shock lead – albeit in controversial circumstances. Check out the push below on Keith Earls in the build-up.

Fair or a bit much?
