Tobias Botes: Kicked 10 points in win over Edinburgh
Treviso came from behind to clinch a 20-16 victory over Edinburgh in their RaboDirect PRO12 clash at Stadio Comunale di Monigo.
Carl Bezuidenhout kicked three penalties to put the visitors 9-3 up at half-time, with Treviso's only score coming via the boot of Tobias Botes.
But hooker Leonardo Ghiraldini and prop Alberto de Marchi had both scored second-half tries to put Treviso in front, with Cornell du Preez going over late on to give Edinburgh a losing bonus point.
Botes slotted over both of Treviso's conversions and struck another penalty for a personal haul of 10 points.
His second penalty had reduced the gap to three points as the hosts started to come back into the contest after their scrappy showing in the first half.
But try-scoring opportunities were still at a premium until Ghiraldini showed impressive skills to cross the whitewash and give Treviso the lead.
The home side were in again four minutes later as De Marchi went over to seal a fourth victory of the season for the Italian outfit.
