Benetton Rugby scored a decisive win over Edinburgh, beating them 18-16 in Round 5 of the Pro14.

In a direct clash for the playoff zone in Conference B, the Lions won against the Scots in what was a very tight and hard-fought match, played in the rain. The green-and-whites opened the proceedings in the first few minutes with a try by Hayward, and from then on they relied on Allan's kicking.

An extremely valuable success for Benetton Rugby, given that the match provided an opportunity to earn some vital points, making it possible for the Erreà-sponsored team to climb up the table.
