Extended Highlights: Wales 42-0 Italy

Extended Highlights: Wales 42-0 Italy

Wales made light work of their Guinness Six Nations opener as they defeated Italy 42-0 victory in Cardiff.

Josh Adams took the headlines with a hat-trick to add to scores from debutant Nick Tompkins and George North as Wales collected a bonus-point win.

While Wales will have enjoyed every minute of Wayne Pivac’s maiden Championship outing as head coach, the chastening defeat leaves Italy needing to rebuild ahead of this weekend’s round of games.

Wales sit top of the Guinness Six Nations table by virtue of the win, which saw them match a record run of eight Championship victories on the spin.

And they will now look to take the momentum gained into an away day clash with Ireland on Saturday.
