Italian players celebrate after scoring a try in their Six Nations match against Scotland at Murrayfield in Edinburgh, on February 28, 2015A penalty try with just 28 seconds left on the clock earned Italy only their second ever Six Nations win on the road in a tense contest at Murrayfield. The Italians were trailing 19-15 and facing their third defeat of the season when Irish referee George Clancy awarded them their third try of the game after the backpedalling Scotland pack pulled down a threatening maul close to the home line. Italy’s only other Six Nations victory away from home also came at Scotland’s expense, a 37-17 success in 2007. This time it was Scotland who got off to a flying start, Scotland’s scrum-half and captain Greig Laidlaw landing a penalty after Simone Favaro, Italy’s openside flanker, was punished for coming in at the side of a ruck with just 17 seconds on the clock.
