I think it's good to get a result after the improvement in performances during the RBS 6 Nations Championship, but we just missed the result that we really wanted and we must consider this a missed opportunity. These matches really should be won.
We need to develop a killer instinct and Wales looked like they were lost in the second half. We should have won that game but I am proud of the guys - it was good and they never gave up like they have done at the end of some of the games.
The negative side is that we have some injuries, but that's part of the game and hopefully we will have confidence for the next game.
In the first half they (Wales) could have scored more than they did and they recycled the ball very well and put us under pressure.
Definitely there are many positives but we should have won. At least we can go into the game with Scotland in Rome feeling confident.
It will be very hard because Scotland are playing well and even though they lost to Ireland I was impressed. It won't be easy at all but we must have confidence and play at 100%.
Mirco Bergamasco is improving game by game and that's good for Italy and he and Gonzalo Canale have a very good understanding.
Sergio Parisse had another very good game and Paul Griffen did well and took the pressure off Ramiro Pez when he got injured.
I'm glad to see that the guys are improving so much and if it continues like that then Pierre Berbizier has done a good job. The atmosphere in the camp is serene.
The result of the Scotland game will be important, not because of worrying about getting the wooden spoon, which was the problem last year, but because when you are working hard and playing well you also need the results.
In Italy many more people are taking an interest in rugby now and watching the games. They are getting more interested because - like in all sports - it's results that get people interested.
We must remember that Scotland have beaten France and England, however, and it will be a very tough game.
