Only France remain undefeated alongside Wales, though they have only played twice due to their Scotland game being called off following a COVID outbreak.

Wales face Italy, the whipping boys of the tournament, and will hope for another confident victory without any drama. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Italy v Wales on TV and online.

Italy v Wales prediction

Unfortunately for Italy, this one feels like another formality. To their credit, they've picked up double figures in each of their three games so far, though conceding 40+ in each hasn't exactly boosted their cause.

Wales announced their team two days earlier than expected, showing that Pivac is eager to get on with the game and rack up another win. Barring a freak off-day, this should be a comfortable victory by 20-30 points.

Our prediction: Wales win
