Club sides are on the up and they won the U20 encounter so there's hope yet.

I think Italy would smash Georgia with that back play.

Wales are a top side so saying Italy should be booted out after today is ludicrous.

Agree totally. They are a good side, unfortunately all the other 6N sides seem to be on a roll.

There needs to be relegation and promotion.
Georgia deserve a punt.

Georgia would be punted up the arse by that Italian team. And seriously punted in the 6N.

I think it’s time we left.
We put out a pathetic performance, even vs 13 and 14 men.
Worst game we played in 20 years.
Thanks Gavazzi for all the shit decisions made during your reign!

I think the Georgia hype train needs to be stopped.

Italy will beat them next November. I've no doubt about that.

Then they will prove they belong.

It's not even the worst Italy have played against Wales in the last 3 years.. I realise that probably doesn't make you feel any better.

If Italy can get their defence sorted then things wont look so bleak. You had a lot of possession and territory today but went to sleep at key moments which turned the game. Parkes try at the start of the first half and Cory Hill's try at the start of the second were easily avoidable but completely changed the complexion of the match.

I genuinely hope you guys turn it around because I've got a soft spot for Italy. I don't think Connor O'Shea is the man to do it though.
