Weirdly it ought to have been an Italian proven a yellow for knowledgeable foul simply moments earlier.
Elliot Dee was undoubtedly held again chasing a bouncing ball in the direction of the attempt line.
Then seconds later, it’s turned on its head.
Italy have performed properly, however you’d fancy the residence aspect to have one other gear.
Right here’s the incident

OK so replays present Williams’ shoulder has CLEARLY gone into Benvenuti’s head.
The Lions 15 might have truly been sent off for that. Wales had the probability to go an extra three factors – perhaps seven – forward there, however they’ve blown good momentum.
Wales actually shot themselves in the foot there although. The house aspect had the penalty benefit, and he’s not obtained to do something rash there.
Barely unfortunate, however Italy have an enormous probability after the break, they’ll have the additional man for a full 10 minutes.
That stated Italy have performed nicely, 15 on 15, they deserve large credit score. They lack creativity and they’ve kicked fantastically… this recreation is way from over.
