Tipuric is an awesome player, but when he chases kicks, he seems to have a terrible habit of hitting thin air. He really needs to learn to stand the player up instead of flying forward and missing the tackle every time.

Well there we go.

Italy always play their best game first up, Wales always play their worst game first up.
Italy tired after 50 minutes and Wales ran away with the game. Onto next week now.

Well played Wales bit slow in the first half, great try by Italy in the first half. But Wales just to strong for Italy.

Bad luck for the try on the line for the bonus point at the end of the game.

What wi9th Biggar going off at half time, George north look like he might have leg injury, and AWJ getting a knock in the dying seconds of the game. Could it be Wales may have a few injury niggles for next week.

No Sam Davies is a super sub, a Ceri Sweeney type player, he's good to bring on during a game, but fairly poor when starting. I'd keep Dan Biggar to start, and use Gareth and Sam Davies later on when the game breaks up and the opposition gets tired.

The last thing you want is fresh opponents putting Sam under pressure from the first whistle, better when they are too tired to run and he's got an extra second on the ball.

Can't say I am shaking in my boots at the prospect of Wales next week. What attacking Wales did in the second half (none in the first) was largely down to Italian error. England misfired in terms of continuity and attack, but were disciplined (ref aberrations excepted - T. Wood penalty). Spedding and Piccamoles; so far ahead of anything Wales showed, were the only threats. I cannot see the English scrum disintegrating like the Italians, that gave the Welsh their space and territory.

Tonight in Rome will feel much better after the improved 2nd half performance but Wales owe a big,big debt to AWJ and Sam W.Quite a few Welsh players need to up their game.The Italian front row very good for 50 minutes and Parisse just class.Wales didn't just look better with Sam D,they were better.The tactical kicking just not good enough but particularly in the first half.A win but Eddie Jones won't be having sleepless nights after that performance.

So no bonus points in the first round although three sides came close. Got to say Wales may have blown it not getting that forth try, on the form shown yesterday, I cannot see Ireland or Scotland failing too. England at home will probably get one as well.

I knew someone would say that.  It's always the case when Wales win a game......the opposition were rubbish or they lost the game to their own errors and wales profited from it.

Dear Welsh Coaching Team

Before we and the Italian fans down our first bottles of Barolo can you before next week:
-remind Rhys W not to copy the Phillips one-step before passing;
-tell JD2 that his sidestep is there to be used not neglected;
-ask Leigh H/P not to stop running before being tackled;
-start Evans,Baldwin and Francis next Saturday;
-the forwards to adopt the chant 'Quick ball from ruck and maul is all'.

Thanks.Let the drinking begin.

I know the performance is always important but I'm sure the Wales management (and many of us) would have taken a 7-33 win away to Italy first up. I certainly would have before the game. BP would have been nice but when you look at a lot of the score predictions on the other thread then the actual scorelie is both a bigger winning margin and a higher total score by Wales than many predicted. Plus the usually first game rust from us. We can build on this.

I thought Parisse deserved it but that guy goes down in my estimations every game. He is the complete article as a player but as a leader he is fast becoming a large appendage. Needs to shut his gob and just lead by example.

I may be all me, but I thought that Warbs was part to play for the Italian try. The scrum they wasted us in, Warbs stopped pushing, and tried to kick the ball.

It was Welsh superior fitness that won the game not Italy handing us the game. I doubt you'll find many in Wales quaking in their boots over the visit of England either. I mean once again England never set the world on fire with their dour display against the French,in fact they were extremely lucky to win the game. I would still be more worried about a wounded Ireland.

Why did they give away penalties? for fun?

3 tries to 1. North's unstoppable!

Possibly your take on rugby is about 25 years behind the rest OK

Wales superior play and fitness won the game. Bring on the English nowt to worry about.

I don't think the TV coverage will capture the deluge that hit the pitch before kick off.

The ball was a bar of soap for the first half even though the rain eased off.

Had Wales have had better weather I think we would have been looking at a far bigger scoreline. I was impressed with Italian forwards

Levitt I was giving Lee a lot more trouble than we want to see. I think Francis had some advice on how to deal with him after. Levotti was a pain in the backside around the pitch too. Thought Steyn and Parisse were magnificent in the first half. But then totally illegal when defending multiple phases.

Wales went through the motions. Unlecky not to have three more tries than we did. Just short or held up a few times.

Defence looks better. Italys back three and centres weren't too shabby.

Rome is a fantastic city, plan ahead to go in two years time. You'll love it. Italian rugby fans are wonderful, hospitable and passionate.

I missed the last 15/20 mins of the game but in the run up to Davies try thought JP Doyle was inconsistent with a lot of penalties going in Wales favour. Parisse was offside at the ruck but Wales had been doing it consistently though usually 2nd man out and not right at the ruck

There were a few occasions Italy were penalised for not rolling away even though they were being pinned in, something he warned Italy about a few times

That's one of his strengths but like I said thought he was inconsistent and seemed to go in Wales favour, I think Parisse and co did get under his skin a bit questioning him constantly and that maybe counted against them

JP Doyle I think has went backwards as an official and doesn't seem to have many good games these days

My Mrs (a neutral) thought he let the game flow well.


That's one of his strengths but like I said thought he was inconsistent and seemed to go in Wales favour, I think Parisse and co did get under his skin a bit questioning him constantly and that maybe counted against them

He told Webb to shut up too - he obviously listened though.

I though JP Doyle had a magnificent game yesterday, he let the game flow and got all the crucial call correct. OK

JP Doyle is a very good referee and he always refs games to a very high standard, what I would give to have him in the Pro12. He is Irish after all.

Was going to mention that but that was pretty much a one off that I saw but Parisse was in his ear at nearly every stoppage and I think he told off one or two Italians

You mean except for the calls he got wrong? Rolling Eyes

Parisse is fantastic player but a complete gobshoite - if he even pretended to speak to his players after the ref had spoken to him rather than just look petulant then I'd feel a shred of pity.

Marty, bugger off. OK

Unless you are going to say something constructive instead of constantly arguing don't bother. OK

Web was told off, and he listened. Parisse was told off on more than occasion, he did not listen, that is why he was in the end penalised.

He's his own worst enemy at times, can see O'Shea giving the role to one of the younger players sometime soon if he keeps it up
