Wales 18 Italy 18
Wales coach Scott Johnson says his side will have to improve massively to compete with France following their tame draw here on Saturday.
The Azzurri secured their first away point in the Six Nations, after which Wales' players were booed off the pitch less than 12 months after being grand slam winners.
Johnson, who is likely to be in charge of Wales for the last time against France on Saturday before returning home to Australia, refused to criticise his players, saying: "We had our opportunities in the first half. We didn't make the most of them, let Italy back in the game and then got too afraid to lose to play the rugby.
"The effort was there, I haven't got a problem with that, but the execution was poor. There were more handling errors than normal.
"But you have to put your hand up and say Italy played their part. The intent was there but we just did not finish and then we went into our shell.
"We have to go back on to that drawing board and come up with something different next weekend against France. We will have to step things up massively to compete against the French.
"It's disappointing we let ourselves down in our completion against Italy and we have to be honest about that. I keep hearing people talk about wholesale changes but we haven't got too many players left in our tank here.
"We will appraise every-one's performance and be fair across the board on what we think is acceptable."
Key scrum-half Dwayne Peel will miss the match against France, having come off in the eighth minute with a shoulder injury, having suffered ligament damage in attempting to tackle Italy fullback Ezio Galon.
Peel is the seventh Welsh Lion to be sidelined during the championship along with skipper Gareth Thomas, Ryan Jones, Tom Shanklin, Brent Cockbain, Gareth Cooper and Gavin Henson.
Scrum-half Mike Phillips is the likely starter against France after he replaced Peel.
Meanwhile, lock Robert Sidoli said the Italians frustrated Wales for large periods and deserved their first championship point away from home.
The Cardiff Blues forward said: "The result wasn't the one we expected, because we were going for the win, but we weren't surprised by the effort and honesty Italy showed.
"The second half was particularly frustrating. It was very stop-start. They played the tactics well.
"We did try to pick it up but things didn't go our way. There were times in the first half when we could have opened up a really big lead but credit has to go to Italy for their defence."
