Match in pictures: Italy v Samoa


Italy claimed a spectacular 49-17 win over Samoa to kick off their Autumn Nations Series campaign with a bang in beautiful conditions in Padua.

Wingers Monty Ioane and Pierre Bruno each scored a pair of tries, with the Azzurri running in six tries in total as they made it four wins in their last five Test matches.

As part of a new initiative, Autumn Nations Series have commissioned photographers to attend some of the games each weekend for a different take on the action.

These photos were taken by Fabio Mirulla, an eclectic wedding photographer who has been taking pictures for nearly two decades. Fabio tries to convey the power of a single shot that can capture a memory that might otherwise be lost.
