Cardiff Blues trio feature for Wales under-19

Age Grade & Academy | 28th March 2019


Three Cardiff Blues youngsters feature in Wales under-19's entertaining victory over Japan High Schools at Cardiff Arms Park on Wednesday.

Hooker Cameron Lewis, prop Garyn Smith and back row Ioan Rhys Davies were replacements in the 10-try thriller, as Geraint Lewis' side snuck past the visitors to seal a 31-29 win.

The trio also featured in Saturday's 36-24 victory over the same opposition at Ystrad Mynach, alongside lock Cai Davies, while Cardiff Blues academy and age grade coaches, Gethin Jenkins and Craig Everett, were part of Lewis' coaching team.

Wales led 26-12 at the break at the Arms Park, but Japan fought back with three second half tries to entertain the crowd at the Welsh capital.

However, Leo Gilliland's effort proved to be enough for Wales to seal the win and make it two from two in the series.
