Wales head coach Warren Gatland made five changes from the side that defeated reigning RBS 6 Nations champions Ireland in Dublin last weekend for his squad's final World Cup warm-up Test.

Skipper Sam Warburton returned to action after resting a shoulder knock seven days ago, while there were also starts for centre Cory Allen, locks Jake Ball and Dominic Day, together with flanker James King.

Italy arrived at the Millennium Stadium on the back of a 48-7 drubbing by Scotland last time out, and memories were fresh of them shipping 61 points against Wales during the final day of last season's Six Nations in March.
