But the Wales head coach has warned his players they will have to be better than they were in the 26-15 win over Italy in Rome that carried them to a record equalling 11 consecutive win when they face England in Round 3. "But it was great to show the depth of the squad and we are looking forward to a big match in two weeks' time".

"We've got a chance, we're at home, the stadium will be full, it'll be some atmosphere at the Principality Stadium".

We didn't play as well as we would have liked and part of that was probably due to us not having the continuity that we would have had if we hadn't made so many changes.

"We got out of jail".

"It wasn't a great performance today but sometimes you have to win ugly", said Gatland. I don't think it ever looked like we were going to lose the game, but we weren't as accurate as we could have been. "We will be a lot better against England".

"I think there was a lot of frustration", Davies said, remarking that Wales had failed to generate enough points despite dominating territory and Italy giving up 11 penalties, nearly twice the number handed to the visitors.

"There's no regrets, we've won two from two matches and now have a couple of weeks to set up nicely for the England match".

Despite Wales dominating territory and possession for the first 30 minutes, it was Italy who scored the first try.

Scrum-half Aled Davies launched a break from a scrum down the right with Liam Williams setting up Adams for a try which Biggar converted.

Italy responded with an Allan break teeing up Padovani's touchdown.

Italy scored the only try of the first half to trail by 12-7 at halftime.

Scotland's livewire fullback Stuart Hogg and Ireland's flyhalf and world player of the year Jonathan Sexton each limped off in a close first half that ended with Ireland leading 12-10 after tries from Conor Murray and Jacob Stockdale.

"It's bloody hard. We have the ability, but when you don't have the confidence it's difficult".

But, seven months out from the World Cup in Japan, Gatland was satisfied to be heading back to Cardiff - and a date with England in a fortnight - with two wins in the bag.

But it didn't all fall in favour of the Welsh side, as Italy powered to the try line just before the break to score the game's first five-pointer as Braam Steyn touched down following an Italian line out.
