BRESCIA, Italy - Italy skipper Sergio Parisse has warned his side could be punished by the All Blacks if they follow up their 28-23 win over feisty Tonga with a similar performance in Rome later this week.

Tonga trailed Italy 2-1 from their three previous encounters but the Pacific Islanders braved the cold and wet conditions to dominate the first half and came fighting back late on at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti.

Italy, who had left several regular starters on the bench and handed Tomasso Iannone his full debut at right wing, came out stronger after the break and ultimately prevailed thanks to a late penalty try.
