Greig Laidlaw scores late penalty to help Scotland beat Italy

Jonny Gray is disappointed with Scotland's Six Nations campaign

The 32-year-old reflected on Scotland's performance at this years Six Nations, with the Dark Blues matching last year's result of three wins in the competition, but Laidlaw believes they can do better. Tommy Seymour, Nick Grigg, Fraser Brown, Tim Swinson and WP Nel all come into the team. The Scots did hit back with their second try when John Barclay touched down after 25 minutes. "We certainly looked the stronger team in the second half".

Italy vs Scotland gets underway at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome at 12.30pm on Saturday, March 17. A lineout drive set up good position in the Scots 22, and when the ball went down the line the stand-off all too easily ghosted through the defence, with Huw Jones having ill-advisedly drifted out to leave him the space.

It was stirring stuff from the hosts and another superb kick from Allan handed Italy a 12-point lead. It's down to me to put them over and thankfully I was able to do that on Saturday. Sighs of relief all round were the order of the day from Scotland, while some Italian players were close to tears after putting so much into the game and yet again coming away with nothing other than a losing bonus point - and of course the Wooden Spoon. With front-five monsters like Martin Castrogiovanni and Andrea Lo Circero a distant memory, Italy are now playing an expansive game based around talented youngsters like full-back Matteo Minozzi and wing Mattia Bellini, while blindside Sebastian Negri and debutant openside Jake Polledri bring real energy in the loose.
