Gavin Henson will continue as Wales' back-up goalkicker in the RBS 6 Nations Championship - despite his Millennium Stadium heroics against England last weekend.
Henson's late long-range penalty gave Wales their first Cardiff victory over the world champions since 1993.
But Wales coach Mike Ruddock has decided to retain fly-half Stephen Jones as first-choice marksman for his team's Italian job in Rome on Saturday.
Jones, who will feature in an unchanged side, missed three shots at goal from four attempts against England, with centre Henson stepping up to land the match-winning kick amid intense pressure.
"We are sticking with Stephen Jones as our number one kicker, with Gavin Henson there for back-up and also with the option to strike from longer range," said Ruddock.
"However, I have had a man-to-man chat with Stephen, and he knows that he has to improve his strike rate."
The only change in Wales' match-day 22 to face Italy is an enforced one on the bench, where Newport Gwent Dragons forward Ian Gough replaces injured Neath-Swansea Ospreys number eight Ryan Jones.
Gough, who won the last of his 21 caps against Romania in August, 2003, will cover second row, and can realistically expect to make an appearance, especially as lock Brent Cockbain picked up a slight knock during the England game.
"Goughie is a good physical player, and his lineout ability and strong tackling game could come in useful," added Ruddock.
"We are confident that we have made the right selection, but if we need to, we have a good bench and we can change things around if we see fit."
Elsewhere, flanker Martyn Williams, who celebrated winning his 50th cap by producing an outstanding performance against England, has shaken off a knee problem to pack down in the back row alongside Dafydd Jones and Michael Owen.
"We have been striving for a level of continuity with this side from the start, and it is a good feeling to be able to ask the same personnel to just go out there and do it again," said Ruddock.
"We have obviously taken the victory against the world champions in good spirits, but we also know we did not play to the very highest standards of which we know we are capable.
"Therefore, we are looking for an improvement in our all-round game against Italy."
