CARDIFF, Wales (AP) Wales finished runner-up in the Six Nations after thumping Italy by a record 67-14 on Saturday.

The total and margin were the biggest for Wales in the tournament's history.

Winger George North became only the second Welshman after Shane Williams in 2008 to score a try in four straight Six Nations matches, with a rousing solo effort. Flyhalf Dan Biggar made seven of eight goalkicks plus a try for a haul of 21 before he was replaced with a quarter to go.

Never having lost to Italy in Cardiff, Wales made certain of victory within half an hour when they led 20-0.
