Italy shock France in Rome
2011-03-12 18:23

Rome - Mirco Bergamasco kicked a penalty five minutes from time and then Italy held firm to stun France in a historic 22-21 victory at the Stadio Flaminio on Saturday.

It was the hosts' first ever Six Nations win against the French, whose championship hopes are all but in tatters following a second successive defeat.

For Italy this stunning and dogged performance will have banished memories of their 59-13 capitulation to England at Twickenham earlier this season.

Bergamasco kicked five penalties and a conversion for a personal haul of 17 points with man-of-the-match Andrea Masi adding Italy's try.
