ITV will broadcast live Six Nations 2019 action this afternoon as Italy host Wales at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Last year’s game at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff was a rout for Warren Gatland’s men, who ran in five tries to hand Italy their 16th straight Six Nations defeat.
George North – one of 10 changes made by coach Gatland – scored twice, while Hadleigh Parkes, Justin Tipuric and Cory Hill sealed a bonus-point win.
Match coverage begins at 4.00pm on ITV and ITV HD, where Jill Douglas is joined in the studio by Gareth Thomas, Mike Phillips and Ugo Monye.
Sideline reports come from Marco Bortolami, Maggie Alphonsi and Gabriel Clarke, while Miles Harrison, Shane Williams and David Flatman provide match commentary.
