Italy showed a huge improvement in terms of attitude and the way they played. We should be boosted by this performance and should gain in confidence for the game against Scotland.
We still made mistakes, conceding penalties and missing chances to score points, even if the referee was harsh on us by making us play with 14 men for 10 minutes.
Now we have to go to Scotland and we must continue to play practical rather than beautiful rugby.
Against England, we had lots of possession in the second half. It was a good performance in terms of attitude and considering we were missing players like Mauro Bergamasco and Andrea Masi.
We must go to Scotland for a win. We will face a very good Scottish side. They're solid in the scrum and in defence and dominate territory and possession very well.
Chris Paterson has been 100 per cent in this tournament, but it's time for us to go and put on a show. It will be very close, maybe 50-50.
We must be good enough and must keep as much discipline as possible, because, every time we concede penalties, Paterson can punish us.
So we need discipline, the right attitude and application because, in this match, we really must win. That's our target and it should be our target for every match.
Discipline and set plays will be crucial to the outcome of this match and the keys will be to retain the ball, maintain discipline and to convert pressure into points. It's frustrating when we have the pressure but don't get the points.
