48: THE ITALIAN TEST! Finally a little bit of a smile on the Transalpine, who touch, gradually move away from the big side and allow Capuozzo to finish! 49-10 after the transformation.
46: The Italians are too predictable and have the ball stolen.

31st: The public tries to raise its voice in support of Italy. But the Transalpins have their heads under water.
27th: SMITH’S DOUBLE! The highly skilful New Zealander still lets his forwards work with the ball and comes out like minutes early to finish. The score is 35-3.
22nd: BONUS TEST NOW! The Blacks are on a mission and Savea takes advantage of the deception of the ball being carried on the crossbar to calmly slip away. Italy is old! It changed again, 28-3.
19th: NEXT TEST! This time from 70 meters with a sharp run from Savea who makes a huge save. Telea finishes after a nice relay from Barrett! Mo’unga still calm, 21-3.

Day 6: TRY BLACK! As the New Zealanders pile on the pressure, Barrett kills the game with a pinpoint strike. Jordan finishes with a one-handed leap to the rim! Astounding.
