Benetton make it two wins from two in Rainbow Cup with victory over Zebre
The Treviso outfit’s triumph against the Warriors last month came after they failed to win a single game during the regular PRO14 season, in which they lost twice to Zebre.
However, they now have two wins from two in the Rainbow Cup following a hard-fought derby in Parma.
Edoardo Padovani went over for the visitors in the first half, but a penalty try helped Zebre go in level at 10-10 at the break as Benetton ended the opening period with 13 men.
Canna looked to have rescued a draw for Zebre when he converted his own try five minutes from time, but Toa Halafihi had the final say ahead of a rematch between the sides in Treviso next weekend.
