Aironi claimed victory in the RaboDirect PRO12 Italian derby thanks to 27 points from the boot of Luciano Orquera.

The hosts' fly-half successfully slotted nine penalties, with the first coming two minutes into the match and the second five minutes from time, as Treviso failed to secure a win which could have taken them fifth.

It was Aironi's second win in 11 matches in the competition to date but not enough to lift them off bottom spot.

Treviso were unable to keep up the pressure on the play-off places and looked in line for a heavy defeat, as they mustered just two Willem de Waal penalties in the first 72 minutes.

But a period of pressure eventually gave a more respectable feel to the score, with a penalty try awarded against the hosts which Alberto Di Bernardo converted.
