Italy drew 13-13 against France in the Six Nations rugby match

The Italian national rugby team drew 13-13 against France in their third match of the Six Nations, the most important tournament in European rugby. Twenty minutes from the end France was still leading 13-3, but Italy then managed to recover also taking advantage of the fact that France was left with one man less (therefore 14 against 15) from the end of the first time, due to the expulsion of center Jonathan Danty: first three points arrived with a free kick from fly-half Paolo Garbisi, then another seven with the goal from fullback Ange Capuozzo converted by Garbisi himself (the “transformation” is a free kick to which you are entitled after each try, which if scored is worth 2 more points in addition to the 5 of the try).

At the end Italy also had the opportunity to win the match, again with Garbisi, who hit the post from a free kick which could have brought the score to 16-13.

Italy had lost both previous matches played in this Six Nations: the first against England 27-24, the second against Ireland 36-0. The other two matches of the tournament for Italy are scheduled for 9 and 16 March, against Scotland and Wales respectively. At the moment in the Six Nations table Italy is last with three points, the same as Wales. First is Ireland on 15 points, followed by Scotland on 9, England on 8 and France on 6.
