Warren Gatlands side entertain Italy on Saturday looking for the victory which would secure second spot in the Six Nations table.Italy will be desperate to improve on their 58-15 defeat to Ireland in Dublin last weekend, but Roberts believes Wales can rectify some of the errors that cost the team dearly against England. It was one of the toughest losses, certainly, Roberts said. There is no hiding away from that, and the players are desperately disappointed. Roberts says team will learn from England defeat at Twickenham Its a tough one to take, losing to England and theyve won the championship. Huge congratulations to them, and best of luck to them in Paris. You have to learn from disappointments. In fact, you learn more from disappointments than winning.Thats sport. You dont win all the time, and credit to England, they played a better rugby match than us. We have to learn from it, take the loss on the chin, face the music, roll our sleeves up and play well this week against an Italian side who wwill be determined to turn around their loss away to Ireland. Kari Lehtonen Jersey
. Its a new week, and we are fortunate to play a sport and do a job where we can rectify things and right a few wrongs. We are playing for second place now, and that has to be our goal going into the last week. It would be much nicer to be playing to win the tournament, but it wasnt to be. Warren Gatland has gone over last weekends loss to England We had a meeting on Monday, spoke about England and that has been put to bed. There are so many variables, and as players a lot of us have been scratching our heads as to why we didnt turn up in the first-half.Its hard to put a finger on why, but I am not going to make excuses. Thats not what we are about. We are not going to point at loads of little things. Ultimately, we lost a game of rugby, and they played better than us. Thats the black and white of it.
