Wales player ratings in RBS 6 Nations match against Italy

LIAM WILLIAMS: Scored one of Wales' nine tries and was always looking for work. 7/10

GEORGE NORTH: Became only the second Wales player after Shane Williams to score tries in four successive Six Nations Tests. Outstanding. 9

JONATHAN DAVIES: Looked out of sorts during the first half, although he did claim a fine breakaway score. 6

JAMIE ROBERTS: All power and pace, and too much for an overworked Italian defence to cope with. 8

HALLAM AMOS: Had few opportunities to shine, but remains very much a player for the future. 6

DAN BIGGAR: Amassed 21 points and enjoyed an armchair ride behind his forwards. 7

RHYS WEBB: Scored a try just five minutes into his first Test start for six months. Oozed quality. 8

ROB EVANS: Will reflect on a solid Six Nations campaign when he held his own against all opponents. 7

SCOTT BALDWIN: Did what was required in the set-pieces as Wales romped to victory. 7

SAMSON LEE: Put a testing week behind him by making an impressive contribution. 7

BRADLEY DAVIES: Did his job in the tight exchanges. Rarely has a poor game. 7

LUKE CHARTERIS: Impressive around the field and did the hard yards up front. 7

DAN LYDIATE: Captained Wales for the first time in a Test match, and it was an occasion to savour. 7

JUSTIN TIPURIC: Ospreys flanker's afternoon ended because of injury after just 16 minutes. 6

TAULUPE FALETAU: Did not feature on the score-sheet, but consistent throughout. 7

Replacements:

ROSS MORIARTY: Had a Six Nations debut to savour, scoring two second-half tries. 8

GARETH ANSCOMBE: Replaced Amos early in the second period. 7

GETHIN JENKINS: Went on for Evans after 51 minutes. 6

KEN OWENS: Took over from Baldwin, as he had done at Twickenham last weekend, and impressed. 7

RHYS PRIESTLAND: Kicked three late conversions after replacing Biggar. 7

AARON JARVIS: Went on for Lee during the final quarter. 6

JAKE BALL: Replaced Bradley Davies in the second-half. 6

GARETH DAVIES: Made a try-scoring contribution late on. 7
