Six Nations: Wales 38-14 Italy
|Six Nations: Wales 38-14 Italy
George North, one of 10 changes made by coach Warren Gatland, scored twice, while Hadleigh Parkes, Justin Tipuric and Cory Hill sealed a bonus-point win.Matteo Minozzi scored an early try for Italy with Mattia Bellini adding a consolation late on.
Wales will finish second behind champions Ireland if they defeat France with a bonus point next Saturday.Wales had Liam Williams and Gareth Davies both sent to the sin-bin - Williams' yellow card being a major talking point. He was penalised for a high tackle on opposite number Minozzi just before half-time.
Former Wales captains Martyn Williams and Jonathan Davies, part of the BBC commentary team, believed it could have been a red card with one replay showing Williams' swinging arm making contact with the Italian's head.
The challenge appeared to have no malice, but could be deemed as over exuberant at best and reckless at Eric Gordon Authentic Jersey worst.South African television http://www.miamidolphinsauthorizedstore.com/dan-marino-jersey-elite match official Marius Jonker guided French referee Jerome Garces through the decision.
Their conclusion was 10 minutes on the sidelines for Authentic Mark Bavaro Jersey Williams rather than a permanent exclusion although Wales chose not to return http://www.buccaneersshopofficialfo...ll.com/Vernon_Hargreaves_Iii_Jersey the British and Irish Lions back to the field.North had endured a week in which he found himself at the centre of controversy after being accused of not wanting to play for Northampton last weekend.
The 25-year-old will return to Wales next season on a national dual contract and could come back even sooner - after the Six Nations - if his club relations have broken down.In Cardiff he returned to what he knows best in http://www.officiallaramsauthentic.com/Rob-Havenstein-Jersey.html his first Six Nations start in almost a year, scoring tries.
Italy have seen enough of North over the years and he has now crossed for his eighth try in eight matches against the Azzurri.The build-up had been dominated by talk of 'disrespect' by Wales' selection following defeat against Ireland.
The only Welsh survivors were Williams, Parkes, Steff Evans, Gareth Davies and Hill.Scarlets flanker http://www.authenticfootballonlines...om/oakland-raiders-c-1574_1646.html James Davies, brother of Wales and Lions centre Jonathan, was the headline act making his Welsh debut.
Davies made an early impression with a turnover as Wales turned down a penalty kick at goal after three minutes.The decision was Patrick Omameh Jersey vindicated when Parkes took advantage of some weak Italian defence to power over with opposite number Tommaso Castello forced off with a Authentic Corey Liuget Jersey head injury.
Another Welsh try followed when centre Owen Watkin intercepted an Italian attack and sprinted 70 metres before delivering the scoring pass to North.Outside-half Anscombe, starting his first Six Nations match in his preferred position, converted both tries as Wales led 14-0 inside seven minutes.
