Rugby Union Wales move into second with win over Italy
WALES eased into second place in the Six Nations championship after defeating Italy at the Millennium Stadium yesterday and gained the all-important bonus point.

But this was a disjointed match that a new-look Wales had threatened to race away with after they eased into a 14-point lead within 10 minutes.

Despite the early Welsh lead, a dogged Italy refused to buckle and scored a try of their own to keep the match balanced for a while.

In an ill-disciplined display Wales were reduced to just 13 men at one stage as full-back Liam Williams was joined in the sin-bin by scrum-half Gareth Evans.

Italy played against 14 men for 20 minutes and failed to score in that time.

This was also Italy’s 16th-straight Six Nations loss and will reignite the questions about them being replaced by Georgia.
