Italy secured their first Six Nations 2022 win on Saturday by beating Scotland in Parma

Scotland slipped to the bottom of the TikTok Women’s Six Nations table after suffering a 20-13 loss to Italy in Parma.

Both sides were winless after three rounds of action, and an attritional opener in torrential rain saw Helen Nelson and Michela Sillari trade penalties.

Scotland pressed as half-time drew to a close and Emma Wassell came into defensive cover for a try which Nelson converted.

Italy equalized the scores in the same way five minutes after the restart.

Melissa Bettoni, who had scored Italy’s only previous try in the tournament, benefited from a solid forward drive to break through Scotland’s surging defence.

Sillari converted and then launched Italy in front with a 30-yard penalty.

Italy got a break when Silvia Turani moved from close range after 71 minutes and Sillari added the extras.

Nelson netted a penalty three minutes from time to put Scotland within a draw, but Italy held on to move the visitors into fifth place.
