  • WALES 23-15 ITALY

  • Italy have one last tilt. A turnover on the 10m line gives possession to Wales...that's it! Wales hold on for victory, but they were given a fright. Warren Gatland's boys will have to do better in Dublin next week. Thanks for joining us, cheers!

  • No surprises in Wales keeping it tight. But the ref takes exception to Rhys Webb delaying getting the ball out of a ruck. Italy have a scrum on the halfway line. Last chance saloon...

  • Italy throwing it about in desperation now. Wales will be happy to shut up shop and take the win from here.

  • PENALTY, WALES, HALFPENNY. 23-15. Another penalty against Italy on the deck means the gap is now beyond the crucial 7-points... -

  • CONVERSION, ALLAN. 20-15. Game on!!! Can Italy sneak a massive upset?

  • TRY, ITALY, CAMPAGNARO!!! 20-13. Halfpenny throws and long pass out wide and the Italian centre snaps it up, turns on the gas and scores from 90m out. That's his second tonight!

  • PENALTY, WALES, HALFPENNY. 20-8. Adam Jones wins the penalty and Halfpenny hits the target from 40m.

  • The crowd rises as Sam Warburton comes on for Dan Lydiate. Expect Wales to pick up the tempo in the last quarter.

  • It's all Italy at the moment. It's been a long time since Wales had the ball for any significant period of time. A sweeping backline moves comes to an end as North tackles the charging Campagnaro and Faletau forces the penalty.

  • Italy mixing the sublime with the pretty average here. Campagnaro skips past a few in midfield but then spills it in contact, just when it looked like he had unlocked the Welsh defence.

  • So frustrating for Italy! The big blue maul rumbles towards the Welsh line off a 5m line-out but Parisse throws a poor pass to Gori, who drops it. A golden opportunity is lost

  • The benches are to beginning to come into play as Coombs comes on for Charteris and Minto replaces Bergamasco.

  • Priestland breaks and hands off two defenders as he heads for the corner. He throws a wild pass inside but Bergamasco drops it over his tryline! Luckily an Italian boot hoofs it into touch...

  • The game is opening up. Campagnaro charges down a Priestland clearance. McLeaen breaks but his pass inside is intercepted by Priestland who cleans up after his mistake - but that could have been dangerous.

  • Penalty against Bergamasco for going off his feet. That's a big call against the visitors who were making ground deep in the home 22.

  • Italy are back on the attack thanks to a break from Zanni with Geldenhuys up in support on the Welsh 22.

  • Wales are given a let-off as Allan hits the post from a penalty (for entering the maul from the side). The Italian fly-half has now missed 5 points.

  • Castrogiovanni earns a penalty for Italy at the next engage. Allan finds touch on the Welsh 22.

  • A good comeback from Wales at scrum time as they wheel the Italian around to win the feed on the Italian 10m line
