Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Wales begin the defence of their Six Nations crown at home to Italy on Saturday afternoon, with the wing saying that the squad are in a positive mood going into the Millennium Stadium clash.

“We have to be ready for the off – Italy beat France in their first game last year," he said. "There’s a good atmosphere in the camp. We trained well last week. A lot of stuff has been happening on outside but the boys are all concentrating on what’s going on here.”
