Italy, under new coach Gonzalo Quesada, surpassed expectations in their first match, losing narrowly 27-24 to England despite being underdogs.

They led at halftime and outscored England with three tries to two and put in a spirited performance.

The final scoreline doesn’t fully reflect the game’s narrative.

Italy’s last try, which secured a bonus point, came from a penalty after the clock had expired, and England’s defence seemed somewhat unsettled with a significantly altered lineup.

Ireland, known for their structured approach in both defence and attack, are expected to pose a greater challenge for Italy.

Historically, when Italy has visited Dublin for the Six Nations, Ireland has consistently beaten the handicap. In their most recent encounter in Dublin, Ireland won convincingly by 57-6, surpassing the 38-point handicap.

The Irish team has scored over 50 points in each of their last four matches against Italy, and their recent performance against France indicates that high expectations are justified.
