Italy 20-19 Samoa

U20 World Championship hosts Italy gave their supporters something to cheer with a last-gasp win over Samoa.

The defeat means that Samoa are relegated from the competition for next season.

Malu Falaniko had a chance to win it for the Samoans but his late penalty wasn't on target as Italy clung on to a one-point win.

Two penalty tries saw the Italians home from first the scrum and then the maul before they clung on to the delight of the home fans to finish in eleventh place.
