Robinson expects Wales Under 20s to keep Grand Slam dream alive with win over Scotland

Robinson expects Wales Under 20s to keep Grand Slam dream alive with win over Scotland Former Wales centre Jamie Robinson believes that Wales Under 20s will be out for revenge against Scotland this weekend after their agonising defeat in last year's Under 20s Six Nations. Jamie will be part of the Clwb Rygbi Rhyngwladol presentation team for the match, which will be broadcast exclusively on S4C on Friday evening, 12 February, from 6.20pm. English commentary will be available throughout the game on the red button, for this BBC Wales production on S4C.

The Scots prevailled 36-34 in an enthralling encounter in Netherdale last time around, but in the wake of Wales' impressive 35-24 victory away at Ireland last weekend, Robinson believes that Wales will be favourites to win at Parc Eirias on Friday evening. Jamie Robinson said: "Wales will be feeling very positive, they performed very well against a strong Ireland team, and had the better of almost every aspect of the game. A lot of the players have experience of playing in the Guinness Pro12 and that showed on the pitch. "Wales start as favourites against Scotland, certainly. There was good interplay between the backs and forwards against Ireland and they improved at the breakdown as the match went on. They lost up in the Borders last year, even though they probably didn't deserve to lose. They will be determined to beat Scotland this time." With one win already in the bag, Robinson believes Wales Under 20 will have their sights on a first ever Grand Slam this year – but will face fierce competition for the honour. The former Blues, Toulon and Agen back added: "They will be looking to win all of the games but there are some strong teams in the championship, England and France always have strong teams at Under 20s level. But they will definitely be feeling more confident after a stunning win against Ireland." Jamie will join the ex-international lock Deiniol Jones, presenter Gareth Roberts and commentators Cennydd Davies and ex-Wales captain Gwyn Jones, in Parc Eirias on Friday evening as part of the Clwb Rygbi Rhyngwladol team. Andy Moore and Ceri Sweeney will provide English language commentary through the red button service. The programme gets underway at 6.20pm on Friday evening, with kick off at 6.30pm.
