LIVE: Wales v Italy

Last updated:

    Wales open up against an Italy side that they beat 26-9 in Rome on their way to the 2013 title.
  • Warren Gatland is back at the helm after sitting out last year because of his British and Irish Lions commitments.
  • Wales, who are skippered by Alun Wyn Jones, are overwhelming 1/25 favourites with the bookies to beat the Azzurri.
  • But Italy are led by one of the best players in the world in number eight Sergio Parisse and beat France and Ireland in 2013.
