Rugby, Benetton Cole Leinster: 17-61

The Irish province scored nine goals in Treviso, and the green-and-white, who have no national teams, will be penalized for every mistake. Second-half goals from Piantella and Canon Jr. Ospress-Zebre tomorrow

In the thirteenth round of the United Rugby Championship, Leinster lost to Benneton 17-61. Even the nine goals scored by the guests, eight of which were converted. The match was decided in the first half of the match, which ended the Irish 28-3. The Lions test the reaction, but punish each small mistake by giving guests more marks around the score. Numerous absences on both sides, including a large section of athletes still in the retreat of their national teams to 6 countries. MVP Rose Byrne of the competition, author of one goal and seven successful conversions from eight attempts.

The first half

Taking full advantage of Bennett’s constant pressure on the half, Leinster had just five minutes to open the game. From the touch, the Oval Deacon is deployed on the beach, marking the first goal of the day when Byron was transformed. The Lions’ reaction was immediate, with Drago holding a 20-meter ball and playing a percussion instrument. The guests made two fouls in a row to give Smith a 3-7 lead. But it’s a flash in the pan, because at 23 ‘and 28’ the guests score two more goals, which changes the game in their favor, both from a touch situation. Cronin closes the mall from 5 for Leinster’s second goal, and a few minutes later Leo Cullen’s men repeat the action of the first attempt, this time being scored by Larmore. Just minutes before half-time, despite Benetton’s attempts, Drago’s first and wrong tackle opens a prairie again for Larmore; The ball bounces off the multiplayer, derived from the Irish winger’s percussion, and he transforms his own marking to set the score at 3-28 in the first half.

Second half

The hosts tried to resume the match soon after, but an excellent tackle by Tommy O’Brien Smith saved an almost complete attempt, thwarting the green-whites’ initial hopes. In the first real reversal of the field, guests still find the ‘endzone’, a mall led by Hooker Cronin on this occasion. Despite the difficulties, Treviso does not stand aside and temporarily deactivates with a tactic from Piantella. Guests forget about the guard on the side of the meeting point, the young second line sliding into space and flying under the goalposts. However, within three minutes, Leinster still found seven points, the result of another touchdown at 5: this time it was substitute Tracy to mark. The intensity of the game decreases as the minutes go by, but the guests continue to punish every little mistake with the green-and-white defense: Jimmy O’Brien and Tracy get angry with the other two attempts. In the 76th minute, Canon deactivated with a superb individual action, and O’Brien’s half-time goal ended 17-61.

Calendar and Standing

If the 13th round of the URC against Leinster does not satisfy Bennett, his return to the field on March 25 will also be complicated. The Lions will face the Monster at 20.35 at Musgrave Park. Treviso is 11th in the rankings with 23 points from four wins, one draw and seven defeats.
