Wales thought they had made a fifth attempt five minutes into the half, but right-handed Louis Rissam was ahead of Biggar for the final pass.
After the break, the Welsh march continued when Jon Onathan Davis unloaded midfielder George Orj North, who ran 30 meters between the posts, then calmed down.
In the third quarter, Pivak made seven substitutions, including resting senior Alun Wynne ounces, giving Jake Ball his 50th cap, և the changes stalled Wales momentum.
Italy hit the crossbar when the left-hander, Montanna Ioanne, hit the Risam ammit and collected it before diving into the corner.
Adams missed a second attempt when his foot hit Paolo Garbisi’s finish line before the ball was grounded.

Wales responded to a call to replace Callum Sheedy Re Rees-Zammit’s 80-meter break to end Italy’s 16th straight win over a maximum of one opponent.
