Teenage winger Louis Rees-Zammit scored a maiden try on his first start as a youthful Wales ended a six-game losing streak with an 18-0 victory over Georgia in the Autumn Nations Cup.

Rees-Zammit also set up a try for replacement scrum-half Rhys Webb and fly-half Callum Sheedy scored his first points in a Wales jersey with a conversion and two penalties as the home side laboured to a victory that will ease the pressure on coach Wayne Pivac.

Wales remained third in Group A, behind second placed Ireland who lost to England at Twickenham earlier on Saturday.

The Welsh are five points behind leaders England, who they host next Saturday, and they handed debuts to flanker James Botham, grandson of former England cricketer Ian, scrum-half Kieran Hardy, centre Johnny Williams and teenage out-half Ioan Lloyd.

Georgia showed improvement from their 40-0 drubbing by England last time out, but were surprisingly out-muscled in the scrum and have now scored only seven points in their last three tests.
