According to Italy head coach Gonzalo Quesada, Ireland has a similar ability to keep their opponents under constant pressure as the All Blacks. In their match against Italy on Sunday, Ireland showcased their skills and defeated the Azzurri 36-0 in a comfortable victory. Although Italy had improved since their previous match against England, Ireland's strong defense and dismantling of their set-piece prevented Italy from gaining any momentum. Quesada praised Ireland's relentless approach but criticized his own team for not applying enough pressure. Despite conceding six tries throughout the game, Quesada was pleased with Italy's improvement in the second half. However, their poor set-piece performance hindered their ability to sustain attacks and capitalize on defensive turnovers. Quesada believes his team needs to be more pragmatic and utilize their kicking game effectively.
