Wales was just too good for Italy on Saturday. Wales had their way for the whole game and scored 7 tries to the 1 on Italy to beat them 48-7.
Wales was quickly on the board from a Biggar penalty to get the scoreboard ticking over.
Wales were playing on the front foot with Italy giving away penalties which allow Wales to get in the red zone. With Wales on attack, some negative play from Luca Bigi and Italy got a yellow card for their trouble.
From the scrum the ball goes out wide with a brilliant pass from Biggar to Adams who goes over in the corner.
Biggar conversion was successful and gave Wales a 10-0 lead.
Wales now in total control did not take long before they send Taulupe Faletau over their second try and a 15-0 lead. The Italians had some opportunities to get points on the board but they looked bad on attack with ball in hand with no plans.
In fact it was Owens who got two tries for Wales to extend their lead to 27-0.
Italy could have count themselves lucky that they were not further behind at the break as the teams went into halftime with Wales leading 27-0.
It took Wales the better part of two minutes in the second half to get their first try through North.
Italy finally got points on the board with some individual brilliance form Monty Ioane who kicked and collect to score in the corner.
Italy then loss Marco Riccioni to another yellow card for contact with a leading arm in a players neck. Wales did not took long to take advantage of the yellow card with Callum Sheedy getting over for another try.
Wales had one more try in them when Louis Rees-Zammit intercepted from his own twenty two top out sprint the defence. This gave Wales a 48-7 lead.
Italy had a their last chance in getting another try at the end of the gambit couldn’t hold on to the ball at the end and it was Wales that took the win.
