Wales came away from the Stadio Flaminio with a 16-24 victory over their hosts, ending a bad run of results in World Cup years.
It looked as though Wales would inflict another heavy defeat on Italy after a fast start, but Italy managed to stay in the game and could actually have won it if they’d taken all their chances.
It wasn’t too pretty, with plenty of mistakes from each side, but the win keeps Wales’ slim title hopes alive, ahead of a home clash with Ireland and a trip to the Stade de France on the final weekend.
Sam Warburton continues to impress in the Welsh back row, and is growing into one of the side’s best players. If he can galvanise the rest of the team to keep raising their game, maybe a Welsh championship victory is not unthinkable.
