Is Italy vs Wales on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Six Nations fixture

Italy host Wales in the fourth round of games in the 2021 Six Nations, with the Grand Slam still firmly in the sights of Wayne Pivac’s team.

An impressive win over England two weeks ago gave Wales the triple crown and Louis Rees-Zammit is focused on continuing to impress after his big performances so far.

Italy continue to make changes as they look for a winning formula, having lost all three games so far, with Oliviero Fabiani a notable inclusion on the bench for the first time in this year’s Championships.

While Italy have conceded the most tries so far from the three rounds of games played, Wales have scored the most – suggesting it could be a one-sided game if Wales’ attacking play, and Italy’s backs, stay true to form.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.
