Australia fail to impress in Florence
Australia claimed their second win on their November tour with a 32-14 win over an ill-disciplined Italian outfit.
In a match that lacked any really quality, it was the boot of Berrick Barnes that ensured that Robbie Deans' men picked up the second scalp on their end-of-year tour. However, it was far from a performance that will quell the growing discontent amongst the Australian press and public.
Man of the match: The Italians certainly played with great courage and for all the interest surrounding his debut, Edoardo Gori enjoyed a productive start. But it was the boot of Berrick Barnes that was the difference between the two teams.,25883,9989_6516978,00.html
