The Six Nations 2019 already has the pressure of this being the Rugby World Cup year too, so performances have to be at their peak. The Celtic clash between Italy and Wales should be a powerful one as pre-tournament favourites, Italy, hope to spring back after an opening loss to England.
Great news though as you can watch every Six Nations game from practically anywhere and getting a Wales vs Italy live stream is no exception. Italy have started on the back foot after their defeat by England (32-20) in the opening Six Nations game for the side. But as the favourite at the start of this competition and with everything still to play for, Wales are going to be firmly in the team’s crosshairs. With injuries plaguing the likes of CJ Stander, Devin Toner and Garry Ringrose, Italy’s coach Joe Schmidt has had to make changes – Quinn Roux, Sean O’Brien and Rob Kearney all earning a recall. Wales is coming off a win after beating Italy (33-20) but since the Italians are the outsiders in this competition this likely hasn’t swelled the Scottish egos too much. Wales’s prop Willem Nel and flanker Sam Skinner are both ruled out through injury. The game itself is free to air in the UK, so you can tune in to a Wales vs Italy live stream for free if you’re there. For all your other viewing options, keep on reading.
