By John

In a match valid for the third day of the 2024 Six Nations, coach Quesada’s Italrugby, after defeats against England and Ireland, drew 13-13 with France at the Stadium Nord Lille Metropole. The first half ends at 10-3 for the hosts, who score a try (converted by Ramos) with Ollivon and a placed with Ramos; for the Azzurri, a free kick from Page-Relo resulting from Danty’s foul, punished with a red card at the start of the second half, which the Azzurri therefore disputed with the extra man. Ramos (45′) and Garbisi (61′) hit the ball from a free kick, in the 71st minute the National team equalized (13-13) with Capuozzo’s try converted by Garbisi. In injury time Italy had the chance to overtake but Garbisi’s free kick hit the post. On Saturday 9 March the Azzurri will be involved in the penultimate match of the Tournament against Scotland, fresh from the feat against England, on the pitch of the Olympic Stadium in Rome (3.15 pm).
