Italy To Dine on “Frog’s Legs” Tonight with Surprise Victory Over France

Where in the blue hell did Italy come from this morning?? The long suffering red-headed stepchild of the Six Nations surprised the skeptics… OK, they surprised pretty much everyone in the Rugby Universe today by racking up what can be considered the nation’s biggest win ever by beating defending Grand Slam champions France in a sqeaker, 22-21 today in Rome. 

This win is the Azzuri’s first ever victory against Team Frog in their 11 Six Nations matchups, and their second win in 32 games against France.

With today’s win, Italy hopes to shake off their recent dismal play in international matches, having lost 9 of their previous 10, their only bright spot a victory over Fiji during last autumn’s friendly test run.
