Cornelius van Zyl: Scored Treviso's first try

Treviso staved off a determined fightback from Zebre before securing a 20-15 victory in their derby at Stadio Monigo in Treviso on Saturday.

The triumph over the PRO12's bottom-placed team moves Treviso into ninth spot in the standings level on points with Cardiff Blues with a game in hand.

Treviso led 14-8 at half-time, after Cornelius van Zyl and Manoa Vosawai crossed over for tries, which Mat Berquist converted.

They had to come from behind, however, after Marco Bartolami scored Zebre's first five-pointer in the 12th minute and Luciano Orquera also succeeded with a penalty shortly afterwards to give Zebre an 8-0 lead.

The home side's lead didn't last long as Dries van Schalkwyk crossed the whitewash shortly after the restart and Orquera's conversion put the visitors in front - at 15-14 - again.

Berquist regained the lead for Treviso with a penalty on the hour mark and sealed the win in the game's closing stages with another three-pointer from the kicking tee.
