Quartet help Wales crush Italy


Josh Adams scored a stunning hat-trick to give Wales – and our four Dragons involved - the perfect start to their 2020 Guinness Six Nations campaign.

The lethal wing raced in at the corner for two first-half scores before crashing over for the fifth and final score of a 42-0 destruction of Italy.

Nick Tompkins announced himself on the international stage with an explosive performance off the bench, and capped his dream bow with a breakaway score in the second-half.

It felt as if Italy were going to hold firm as Wales battled for a crucial bonus-point score deep into the second-half.

But on his 92nd Wales appearance, George North made sure Wales came away with four points to send an early statement to their Six Nations rivals.

There was still time for Adams to cap-off a flawless performance by claiming a hat-trick that makes him only the second Welsh Six Nations hat-trick scorer after North.

Aaron Wainwright started the game at Principality Stadium while Leon Brown, Ross Moriarty and Cory Hill were all replacements.
