4:02 pm on 10 February 2013

Italy came crashing back to earth just six days after the historic rugby victory over France in their opening Six Nations encounter, going down 34-10 to Scotland on Saturday at Murrayfield.

Tries by Tim Visser, Matt Scott, Stuart Hogg and Sean Lamont, countered by a late consolation effort by Alessandro Zanni, helped Scotland rebound well from an opening loss to tournament favourites England.

Wales bounced back from their home loss to Ireland to upset France 16-6 in Paris.
