Wales will attempt to avoid a fifth straight defeat in this year’s Six Nations championship when they welcome Italy to Cardiff today. The Welsh have made four changes to the team that lost to France, with George North starting on his Test farewell, while the Azzurri will be without the influential Ange Capuozzo. 

Wales vs Italy is free to watch, and from anywhere in the world by using a VPN, if you're away from home. The match kicks off today at 2.15pm GMT / 10.15am ET / 6.15am AEDT (Sun) on Saturday 16th March.

The Italians are currently four points clear of Wales after their historic first home win at the Six Nations in 11 years. Wales have fallen to four straight defeats and will want to avoid the Wooden Spoon. Coach Warren Gatland knows his side are going through a transition period with numerous young players are handed a chance to impress, but he will demand a complete performance rather than in fits and starts.

There was plenty to admire in the narrow defeats to England and Scotland but their naivety and inexperience has shown in the last two games which have resulted in punishing defeats to Ireland and France. They certainly won’t want a repeat of the last time the sides met in Cardiff in 2022 as Italy secured a win, but can look back on last year’s encounter with positive memories as they ran out 29-17 victors in Rome.
