Ben Donaldson's horror show on debut
WATCH as Ben Donaldson makes a horror start to his international career.
Italy held on to claim the first-ever victory over Australia, winning 28-27 in Florence.
The hosts were impressive throughout the duration of the match, with dynamic fullback Ange Capuozzo crossing for a double as they led from the start, and held on as a late conversion attempt from Ben Donaldson sailed wide.
The visitors fought their way back from a 14-point deficit in the first half, with tries to Tom Robertson and Cadeyrn Neville in the second half bringing the deficit back to one point and giving debutant Donaldson an opportunity to win it.
However, it was not to be as the Azzurri celebrated a famous win with their home fans in Florence.
