Highlights: Wales v Italy

Wales secured fifth place in the Autumn Nations Cup as they ran in five tries to triumph 38-18 against a stubborn Italy side and finish their year on a high.

Tries from Kieran Hardy and Sam Parry, both converted by Callum Sheedy, saw Wayne Pivac’s men make a dream start as they built an early 14-0 advantage at Parc y Scarlets.

The Azzurri responded with a penalty from Paolo Garbisi and Marco Zanon’s well-worked try as they closed the deficit to just a point at half-time, trailing 14-13 at the break.

Johan Meyer’s score following the restart then put Italy ahead for the first time before Wales roared back with tries from Gareth Davies, George North and Justin Tipuric.

Sheedy also added a further penalty and three conversions to Wales’ total from the tee as the hosts sealed their second victory of the year over Franco Smith’s side.
