I think you are over reacting to this result. Yes, it's was a shame of a game, but look at the line-up.

I doubt more than five or six players fielded yesterday will be in the 23.

It's disappointing in Italy, but this game does not tell us much about what will happen next week or next February.

Still, Italy has not much credit left, and the 700k€ probably do not compensate the bad reputation.

It saddens me to constantly see the Azzuri lose by such margins. Not long ago the team nearly beat England, the Pro14 clubs are slowly getting more respectable results but those do not seem to translate into the national side.

This result means nothing, there will be a different team against the Lelo's next week and hopefully our guys know this.
You are terminated!

This afternoon there's the 9th day of Top12. Kick-off 15.00 (14 GMT)

As always all the matches are live on line

Petrarca v Valorugby is a duel between the two leaders: an historical one (Petrarca) and a surprising one (Valorugby is from Reggio, near Parma). Also Mogliano v Calvisano and Viadana v Rovigo are very interesting in play-offs perspective.
Verona v Valsugana (both teams are from Veneto) appears almost already a barrage to avoid relegation. The best four teams qualify to the semifinals, the last two are relegated to Serie A.

Viadana-Rovigo
Verona-Valsugana Padova
San Donà-Fiamme Oro Roma
Lazio-Medicei Firenze
Petrarca Padova-Valorugby Emilia
Mogliano-Calvisano

Standing (8/22 days)
Petrarca Padova 34; Valorugby Emilia 30; Fiamme Oro 28; Mogliano 25; Calvisano 24; Rovigo 24; Viadana 20; I Medicei 16; San Donà 14; Lazio 10; Valsugana Padova 7; Verona 5

(a moment of self-promotion)

On our facebook we published a resume by images about this year's Italian rugby; one photo per month
