Flyhalf Luciano Orquera’s best bits against France in Rome

first_imgThursday Feb 7, 2013 Flyhalf Luciano Orquera’s best bits against France in Rome Luciano Orquera was a well deserved Man of the Match as Italy achieved a famous 23-18 upset victory over France in Rome on Sunday. Here is a quick look at some of Orquera’s best bits on the day, which included setting up two tries and kicking superbly. Flyhalf Orquera said post match that Italy were extremely motivated and had intended to do all they could for their second victory over France in three seasons, the last coming in 2011.“We were mentally strong right from the beginning. After two years we have beaten France again in Rome. We wanted to win at any cost and we never gave up,” the 31-year-old Zebre flyhalf said.Italy coach Jacques Brunel has unsurprisingly stuck with Orquera for the upcoming game against Scotland on Saturday, keeping faith in the pairing he has with Treviso number nine Tobias Botes.Italy beat Scotland in their final game of the Six Nations last year, so will be aiming for their third successive victory in the tournament, and are determined to avoid the wooden spoon yet again.Match details: Scotland vs Italy | Date: Saturday, 9 February | Venue: Murrayfield | Kick off: 14:30 GMTItaly team:Andrea Masi, Giovanbattista Venditti, Tommaso Benvenuti, Gonzalo Canale, Luke McLean, Luciano Orquera, Tobias Botes, Sergio Parisse, Simone Favaro, Alessandro Zanni, Francesco Minto, Quintin Geldenhuys, Martin Castrogiovanni, Leonardo Ghiraldini, Andrea Lo CiceroReplacements: Davide Giazzon, Alberto De Marchi, Lorenzo Cittadini, Antonio Pavanello, Paul Derbyshire, Edoardo Gori, Kristopher Burton, Gonzalo GarciaScotland team: Stuart Hogg, Sean Maitland, Sean Lamont, Matt Scott, Tim Visser, Ruaridh Jackson, Greig Laidlaw, Ryan Grant, Ross Ford, Euan Murray, Richie Gray, Jim Hamilton, Rob Harley, Kelly Brown, Johnnie Beattie Replacements: Dougie Hall/Pat MacArthur, Moray Low, Geoff Cross, Alastair Kellock, David Denton, Henry Pyrgos, Duncan Weir, Max Evans    Time: 1:52Credit: LasGarzas11ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Six Nations 2013 Related Articles 424 WEEKS AGO The Six Nations 2013 Highlights Montage 429 WEEKS AGO Vincent Clerc’s incredible volley almost… 430 WEEKS AGO France get first tournament win with Paris… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
