Polledri’s try, a typically powerful finish through Japanese front row duo Shota Horie and Keita Inagaki in the 44th minute, added to scores from Tomasso Benvenuti and Leo Ghiraldini, opening up a healthy lead for the Italians before they were given a late scare by the hosts. 

Eventually, the Italians held on to win 25-22 as Japan scored 19 late points to create the dramatic finish, with Polledri replaced after 77 minutes.
