Yet another demonstration of strength and concreteness provided by the Biancorossi to their fans, who flocked in large numbers to the HBS Stadium in Colorno to support their boys. Six tries were scored by the home team against the second strongest team in the Championship, a feat achieved by very few teams throughout the season.

A Sebastiano Cupo definitely found from the pitch (3 out of 3) sent the teams to the break on 21-0.

The script was different in the second half, thanks above all to the change of gear of the Fiamme Oro.
