Duncan Weir’s last-gasp drop-goal sealed a dramatic 21-20 RBS 6 Nations victory for Scotland over Italy at the Stadio Olimpico.

Joshua Furno’s try had looked like it would be enough for Italy to win; the second row’s score coming after Alex Dunbar had edged Scotland ahead with two tries.

Tommaso Allan had earlier touched down for Italy, and kicked two penalties and two conversions for the Italians, who were in control for large portions of the game.

But Weir's heroics won the tie at the death.
