Italy v Wales Match Reports

Wales recovered from a half-time deficit to beat Italy 33-7 at Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Italy were 7-3 up at the break thanks to a converted try from scrum half Edoardo Gori. Wales started gathering points early in the second half through Leigh Halfpenny's boot. Then, with Andrea Lovotti sent to the sin-bin on the hour mark, Wales took full advantage and scored two converted tries to build a commanding lead. George North added a third try in the 78th minute as Wales went searching for a bonus point, but they couldn't quite manage a fourth try. A selection of match reports is listed below:
