Wales seal another victory

Latest update : 2008-02-23

Led by man of the match Lee Byrne, Wales won their third game in the Six Nations championship after a nervous first half but eventually dominated the second half. Final score: 47 - 8.

CARDIFF - Wales overwhelmed Italy 47-8 on Saturday to maintain their unbeaten record after three rounds of the Six Nations championship.
 

Fullback and man-of-the-match Lee Byrne scored once in each half, centre Tom Shanklin celebrated his 50th cap with a simple intercept try after the interval and wing Shane Williams added two brilliant tries.
 

Flyhalf Stephen Jones gave an immaculate display of place kicking with four penalties and three conversions and his
replacement James Hook slotted two conversions.

 

Italy held the home side to a five-point lead at halftime and should have been ahead. However, left wing Gonzalo Canale
dropped the ball with only the tryline in front of him and fullback Andrea Marcato twice hit the uprights.
