In the second half they were the superior side and controlled the game the way they wanted to. We were too undisciplined and Mirco Bergamasco’s sin binning did not help us at all. We had our chances only in the first half but twice we threw it away.
Our attitude was really negative in the second half and we conceded too much to the Welsh and it was a poor performance on our side at the end.
However, we put a lot of pressure on them at the start and it was a very physical game - and their poor approach in the first half had a lot to do with us. But sadly our kicking game was poor and we did not have enough depth.
I believe Andrea Marcato played well but he was so unlucky with his kicks, especially if you think he hit the post twice. He played well even though he made some mistakes but he was okay and we all know he needs time to step up a this level.
Andrea Masi let me down a little bit because of the mistake he made but you cannot blame only him for the heavy defeat.
The game against France will be very hard for us as they are coming off a defeat against the former World Champions and they'll be confident searching for a important win plus they're at home. They are a young team but their attitude is good and they've got talent and speed.
It will be difficult if we let them come forward with the ball from left to right because they're very quick and powerful. But if we put pressure on them we could put them in big trouble.
