Wales have reported no fresh injuries for their Six Nations trip to face Italy in Rome.

Warren Gatland's side beat France 24-19 in the opening match in Paris after coming back from a 16-0 deficit.

Full-back Liam Williams was the major concern after leaving the field with a cut head.

"Most of the boys have come through without serious injury and I would say everybody will be OK for Saturday," said Wales kicking coach Neil Jenkins.

"The boys seem OK. It is normal after a Test match with battered and bruised bodies."

Scarlets full-back Leigh Halfpenny is still missing with concussion after being ruled out for the first two games.

Centre Scott Williams (ankle) and outside-half Rhys Patchell (hamstring) were unavailable for the France match.

Wales have travelled to Nice for a week training camp with a 31-man squad before arriving in Italy in a bid to replicate the World Cup later this year.

Former Ospreys scrum-half Tito Tebaldi will not be available for Italy after suffering a back injury in the warm-up in Scotland.

Benetton's Edoardo Gori, who has 68 caps, had already been added to the squad.

Meanwhile Zebre hooker Oliviero Fabiani has been ruled out through injury the day after being called up, with uncapped 22-year-old Engjel Makelara of Benetton replacing him.
