Tries from fly-half Tommy Allan, captain Jonny Gray and wing Damian Hoyland secured the victory, but the performance of Glasgow Warriors’ on-loan star Bennett was the highlight and he claimed the man of the match award.

“We’d been working hard all week and it was disappointing to lose last week against England, so we’ve just been building from there and it showed [against Italy],” he said.
“We thought that we were fitter than them from the start and we tried to use that to our advantage, we tried to lift the tempo as quickly as we could and it worked.”
