Match Commentary

81'7-33 End of second half
80'A superb second half display from Wales, who scored 30 unanswered points after half time to ease to victory. As profligate as they were in the first 40 minutes, they were ruthless in the second. Sam Davies was superb after replacing Dan Biggar, and there were standout performances from Alun Wyn Jones, Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric and Scott Williams too. Italy can take heart from their first-half performance, but they ran out of gas as the game wore on.
80'Into the final minute and Wales want a bonus point. Some superb hands from Wales and a deft kick inside from Liam Williams almost free Gareth Davies. He cannot gather but as the ball is spun left Liam Williams almost gets a fourth Wales try but loses the ball as he goes over the line.
