Alex Davies's late penalty rescued London Welsh from a Challenge Cup defeat against Cavalieri Prato.

Daniel George's try, converted by Gordon Ross, gave the Exiles an early lead which was extended by Joe Ajuwa.

Ross added a penalty but missed two kicks before Denis Majstorovic went in for the hosts before half-time.

Ajuwa added a second but tries by Billy Ngwaini, Niccolo Tempestini and Giacomo Bernini, all converted, put Prato in front before Davies stepped up.
