Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork.

South Africa were expected to bounce back following their 37-21 loss to England last weekend against an Italy side who were soundly beaten 68-10 by New Zealand.However the Azzurri produced a fantastic defensive display, master-minded by former Springbok centre Brendan Venter, to deny the Boks and condemn them to their sixth Test lost in their last seven matches. Bryan Habana, winning his 124th cap for the Springboks, gave Allister Coetzees men an early boost with an eighth-minute try that took his Test total to 67.But Italy, now under Irish coach Conor OShea, were on a mission to play creative rugby and did so while repelling several promising South African attacks during an entertaining game in Florence. Sergio Parisse led Italy superbly on an emotional afternoon It is South Africas first defeat to Italy in 13 matches and will heap more pressure on Coetzee ahead of their final November Test against Wales next week. Italian heads went down quickly in Rome last week when the All Blacks scored the first of 10 tries inside five minutes, but the Azzurri had been given hope by the Boks recent crisis.From the restart, Italy won a penalty and kicked deep into Bok territory where a driving maul, and some chaotic defence, saw Bloemfontein-born Andries Van Schalkwyk crash over for a pushover try. Carlo Canna hit the conversion to give the hosts a 7-5 lead on 13 mins.It sparked an immediate response, but Edoardo Padovani did well to stop Ruan Combrinck with a great touch tackle as the Boks charged down the middle.

Italy captain Sergio Parisse made a despairing attempt at a tackle but there was no stopping the big centre. This time Lambie found a way through the posts and South Africa were ahead.When Vincent Koch penalised from angling in at a scrum, Padovani hit a 50-metre penalty to take the score to 12-10.South Africa started the second period in determined fashion and were given a boost when Fuser was shown a yellow card for a tip tackle on De Jaeger. Damian de Allende breaks down the wing to score for South Africa Play continued, but Combrinck missed an inside pass from Habana with the tryline begging.Lambie kicked the penalty to take the Boks lead to 15-10, but the visitors spurned several chances to cross for their third try, Le Roux narrowly missing going over in the corner before seeing his pass back in field go awry.The Boks, however, were caught out spectacularly on 55 minutes when the ball was fed out to the left and Giovanbattista Venditti went over in the corner. Pieter-Steph du Toit makes a tackle Canna hit the conversion for a 17-15 lead to revive thoughts of the Boks historic defeat by Japan at the 2015 World Cup in England.When Parisse was caught offside in his own half on the hour, Elton Jantjies fired his long-range effort over to take the score to 17-18.But De Jaeger failed to roll away at a ruck, and Canna hit the penalty to take Italys lead to 20-18.
