  • TRY: Scott Williams, 38mins. Wales 15 - 3 Italy #WALvITA
  • [Try] Just as I type that... Williams scores! Roberts makes the initial break and times his pass to Williams to perfection, who strolls over by the posts. 15-3 Wales
    2/1/2014 3:12:45 PM
  • Halfpenny slams over a routine conversion and it looks as though Wales will take a 17-3 lead into half-time
    2/1/2014 3:13:25 PM
  • CON: Leigh Halfpenny, 39mins. Wales 17 - 3 Italy #WALvITA
  • HALF-TIME: Wales take a comfortable lead into the break. Tries for Cuthbert and Williams at the start and end of the half have put distance between themselves and Italy, who have battled hard but rarely threatened the try-line.
    2/1/2014 3:15:08 PM
  • The players return to the field for the second half. Will Wales run riot or can Italy forge an unlikely fightback? Stay tuned for updates...
    2/1/2014 3:26:13 PM
  • [betting]Italy have a mammoth task now, as if they didn’t to begin with. To put things into perspective, Sky Bet make them 40/1 to somehow salvage a win or a draw from their position at half-time. They’ll need to cross the line next but Angelo Esposito is a long shot at 33/1 to score the next try in the game, likewise Leonardo Sarto. Bet in-play here.
    2/1/2014 3:26:30 PM
  • TRY: Michele Campagnaro, 42mins. Wales 17 - 8 Italy #WALvITA
  • [Try] What a try for Italy!! Stunning finish from Campagnaro! He collects a forward-looking pass (cleared by the TMO) and breaks down the wing, kicking past the last man and finishing in style. Wales 17-8
    2/1/2014 3:31:30 PM
  • Allan is off target with the conversion so Wales remain nine points to the good
    2/1/2014 3:31:58 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] Ill-discipline from Italy from the restart but Halfpenny is off-target with the penalty shot at goal, dragging wide to the left. Is the worm turning?
    2/1/2014 3:33:27 PM
  • Referee John Lacey did go to the TMO but a pass earlier in the move was not ruled forward & the try was given. Wales 17 - 8 Italy #WALvITA
  • Centre @ScottWilliams_1 added Wales' second try on the verge of the half time whistle. #WALvITA http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BfZisJWCQAEqn8Z.jpg

  • 48 - Wales are penalised in the scrum yet again. That's twice today they've been guilty of bringing it down. McLean plants a kick deep into the corner and the line-out is collected...
    2/1/2014 3:36:45 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] Post! Allan strikes the left upright with a penalty. So unlucky! That said, he really should have made that. His record is one from three and these misses are looking costly for Italy
    2/1/2014 3:38:56 PM
  • 53 - Wales are forced into some desperate defending after a concerted spell of Italy pressure. The crowd are getting edgy but their players stand firm and eventually win a penalty when Bergamasco goes in off his feet
    2/1/2014 3:41:13 PM
  • Thank you to all of the 66974 attendance today at the Millennium Stadium, 53mins. Wales 17 - 8 Italy #WALvITA
  • 56 - A brilliant jinking run from Priestland takes him within a stride of the try-line but McLean just muscles him towards touch and the Wales No.10 is forced to throw the ball back. He is lacking support, though, and Italy scramble it out of play via the boot of Lydiate
    2/1/2014 3:45:15 PM
  • SKY BET ODDS
    [betting]Michele Campagnaro was a massive 50/1 to score the next try with Sky Bet, but Italy are still 33/1 to claim a win here. See all our latest odds on Wales v Italy here.
    2/1/2014 3:49:04 PM
  • First change for Wales and it's Andrew Coombs who comes on for Luke Charteris at lock #WALvITA
  • 59 - The referee brings play back for obstruction by James by Allan and the Italy No.10 kicks brilliantly out of hand into the Wales corner and Italy mount an attack
    2/1/2014 3:50:58 PM
  • 61 - The Italy line-out has worked well today but as they move the ball wide Wales regroup and a kicking exchange follows
    2/1/2014 3:52:20 PM
  • 65 - Falatau has been a rock for Wales in defence today. Once again he comes to the rescue after Italy put together another prolonged spell of passing rugby. I didn't think i'd be typing this but Italy have been the better side today
    2/1/2014 3:56:22 PM
  • Warburton comes on for Lydiate, 64mins. Wales 17 - 8 Italy #WALvITA
  • Rhodri Jones also comes off the bench in place of Adam Jones. Wales 17 - 8 Italy #WALvITA
  • [penalty-rugby] Italy are penalised for not driving straight in the scrum and Halfpenny slots over the penalty from straight in front. Wales lead 20-8
    2/1/2014 3:59:09 PM
  • 68 - Priestland finds touch deep in Italy territory. Just caught a shot of Azzurri captain Parisse shaking his head. He hasn't been impressed with some of the refereeing so far this afternoon
    2/1/2014 4:01:06 PM
  • Rhys Webb replaces Mike Phillips at scrum half with Ken Owens on for Hibbard at hooker. #WALvITA
  • [Try] Campagnaro scores again! He telegraphs Halfpenny's pass and bursts half of the field unchallenged to score under the posts. Big error from Halfpenny. Wales 20-13
    2/1/2014 4:02:37 PM
  • 70 - The conversion is good and it's squeeky bum time for Wales and their supporters in Cardiff. Wales 20-15 Italy
    2/1/2014 4:03:11 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] Italy are caught offside and Wales move beyond a converted try of Italy thanks to Halfpenny's fifth kick of the day. Wales 23-15
    2/1/2014 4:06:41 PM
  • 75 - Seven phases of Italy pressure but Wales have all the answers in defence and the red wall will not be breached. Time running out for the Azzurri...
    2/1/2014 4:09:24 PM
  • #carrythemhome play your game boys. You have earned the right to wear the shirt.
  • 78 - With victory all-but assured the Wales fans burst into a chorus of 'Bread of Heaven'. It inspires the players, who burst forward
    2/1/2014 4:11:23 PM
  • Massive good luck to the boys today @EnglandRugby we are all behind you #RBS6Nations #CarryThemHome
  • FT Wales 23 - 15 Italy #WALvITA
  • We don't have a picture, but can confirm that Pascal Pape won the coin toss against Chris Robshaw. The hosts will kick-off #FRAvENG
  • FULL-TIME: Wales are off to a winning start! It's not been convincing but they get over the line, winning 23-15 in Cardiff. Tries from Cuthbert and Williams and 13 points from the boot of Halfpenny get the two-time defending champions up and running. Stay with us for coverage of France v England.
