Following a 52-10 victory for Scotland over Italy in their Six Nations game, here's our five takeaways from Saturday's match at Murrayfield


Date published: March 20 2021

Following a 52-10 victory for Scotland over Italy in their Six Nations game, here’s our five takeaways from Saturday’s match at Murrayfield.

Yes, the standard phrase, ‘it’s only Italy’ has to be uttered when discussing the South African-born powerhouse, but his performance at Murrayfield continues what has been a fine championship for the talented wing.

Van der Merwe has enjoyed an excellent start to life at Test level after an impressive Autumn Nations Cup campaign and is very much in the frame for British and Irish Lions selection.

There are plenty of good wings around but, with George North seemingly focused on centre, he offers something very different to the other options.

With the Springboks obviously renowned for their physicality, he is a player that can win that gain line battle and get them some go-forward.

We recognise that there are some talented young players in this Italy side but ultimately they have only declined since their inception over 20 years ago.

This is probably the worst side, in terms of performances and results, they have ever put together and the competition needs to have a more fluid structure to allow others their shot at the top level.

Many have suggested that Georgia have also regressed but we won’t really know until they get a consistent chance against top tier opposition.

Ultimately, rugby needs a situation where the likes of Italy and Georgia are getting regular game time versus the best nations in the world.

There were several nice moments from Gregor Townsend’s men against Italy but their effort next week will ultimately decide how they view this tournament.

After a magnificent win in their Six Nations opener against England, they were left irritated by narrow defeats to Wales and Ireland.

‘What if’ is a regular phrase used in Scottish rugby, but it rings particularly true this year.

They should have really been in title contention going into next Friday’s encounter against the French, but a victory would salvage a frustrating competition for Townsend’s charges.

After an outstanding 25-minute cameo against Ireland, Jones came into the run-on side for this fixture and, just like last week’s Test, the Glasgow Warriors centre looked hungry for action.

Although Italy were fastest out of the blocks, Jones settled quickly and was at the heart of his side’s attacking endeavour.

The 27-year-old tested the Azzurri defence throughout by running good angles and combined well with Sam Johnson in midfield.

He also looked solid on defence but in the end, his prowess on attack stood out and he capped an excellent all-round performance by crossing for a deserved try.

It’s fantastic to see the former Stormers outside back return to his devastating form of 2018.

Since the start of the Championship, the Azzurri have struggled to impose themselves on their opponents and their inability to rectify basic errors is particularly concerning.

Once again, their discipline let them down as they conceded a plethora of penalties and having three players yellow carded meant they were on the back foot for long periods.

Like previous Tests, Azzurri fly-half Paolo Garbisi’s knack for kicking the ball upfield but failing to chase after it proved costly.

By doing that, it meant his team-mates were offside and they inevitably conceded a penalty when they played the ball.

Being pinged for such an offence is inexcusable at international level and shows that Franco Smith has plenty of work to do before his team shows signs of improvement.
