Italy v Wales – Live Six Nations 2017 on ITV

Italy host Wales this afternoon as the opening weekend of Six Nations 2017 reaches a conclusion at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

The Azzurri lost all five of their matches last year to finish bottom of the table once again and, while Wales were far from at their best during the tournament, Warren Gatland’s men still managed to finish second behind Grand Slam winners England.

Coverage – which begins at 1.00pm on ITV – will be presented by Jill Douglas, with analysis from Shane Williams, Ugo Monye and Maggie Alphonsi.

Match commentary comes from Miles Harrison and Ben Kay.

Kick-off 2.00pm

Highlights of this match, and the two that took place on Saturday – Scotland v Ireland and England v France – will be shown on BBC Two from 6.00pm this evening.
