Fans, Players & Pundits React To Comfortable Wales Win Over Italy

Wales stayed in the hunt for a second-place finish following a 38-14 win over Italy in Cardiff.

Tries by Man of the Match Hadleigh Parkes, George North (2), Corey Hill and Justin Tipuric, and nine points from the boot of Gareth Anscombe and four points from Leigh Halfpenny, saw Wales pick up a bonus point against a spirited but limited Italian team.

Conor O’Shea’s men replied with two tries by Mattel Minozzi and Mattia Bellini, and four points from the boot of Tommaso Allan and Carlo Canna respectively.


Here’s what fans, pundits and current players had to say about the win:

Wales flanker Sam Warburton, out of the tournament through injury and working for the BBC as a pundit, congratulated Wales on their victory whilst also praising the big contribution of George North.

While some questioned the validity of Italy’s place in the championship following a 16th straight defeat.

And popular Scrum V reporter Phil Steele was effusive in his praise of Wales centre Hadleigh Parkes’ performance.

Wales finish off their campaign against France in Cardiff next Saturday whilst the Italians host Scotland in Rome.
