Match Commentary

82'

So Wales notch up their record-equalling 11th straight victory, the first such Welsh winning streak in a century.

Earlier in the day, Ireland got their Six Nations campaign back on track with a 22-13 victory over Scotland.

Johnny Sexton went off with a head injury during the pulsating first half, but head coach Joe Schmidt said he was confident the World Player of the Year will bounce back quickly.

Join us tomorrow as England face France at Twickenham, and don't forget to check your Fantasy Rugby scores! Tip of the hat if you have Italy's try-scoring flanker Braam Steyn in your team, he's today's top-scoring player with 15 points.

So no bonus point for Wales, which means England can go top of the Six Nations table if they beat France at Twickenham on Sunday.

82'

Just the two tries for Wales, then, but a win nonetheless. They extend their winning run to 11 matches, equalling their record run, and move to the top of the Six Nations table. Wales weren't great but had made 10 changes and will quickly forget about this one as they prepare for a massive clash against England in Cardiff in two weeks time.

Italy put up a good fight and scored two tries to worry Wales for a moment, but ultimately fell to their 19th Six Nations defeat in a row.
