Neil Jenkins says he is expecting Italy to provide Wales with a very tough test, when the two sides meet in the Six Nations tomorrow.
"All of our games in Rome have been decided by very tight margins", Wales' assistant coach said. "Games against Italy are always very tough and I don’t see this one being any different."
“Italy had a fantastic victory here against France three weeks ago and we are expecting a very hard game. They have really developed their game over recent years. They would have been disappointed with the defeat to Scotland but we know they can play and they will want to show that tomorrow."
