VIDEO: Rampant Wales put 67 points on sorry Italy in Cardiff

The visitors look like they’re over this tournament.

Wales 67

Italy 14

THIS TIME LAST year we were treated to one of the most memorable days of rugby in living memory.

Today however, the Six Nations sadly ends on a bit of an anti-climax.

Wales kicked off the action with a dead rubber clash with a demoralised looking Italy in Cardiff.

At half-time the home side led 27-0 despite labouring at times. They then made sure of a big, big score with a dominant second-half performance.

Rhys Webb, Dan Biggar and Jonathan Davies touched down for Warren Gatland’s side.
