WALES Under-19s boss Gareth Williams was pleased that plenty of young guns gave him a Six Nations selection headache in victory against Scotland.

The Welsh youngsters ran out 31-12 winners against their Scottish counterparts at the Dragons' training base in Ystrad Mynach.

The hosts ran in five tries in the victory with plenty of individuals staking a claim to be involved in next year's U20 Six Nations.

"Some of the boys put their hands up and as coaches we're learning about relationships with individuals and getting to know players," said head coach Williams.

"Some of them have given us something to go away and think about now, moving towards the Six Nations."

Five Dragons featured with centre Aneurin Owen vice-captain and joined in the starting line-up by wing Ewan Rosser, loosehead prop Dylan Bartlett, hooker Brodie Coghlan and lock Ben Carter.

It was Owen who provided the assist for the first try by putting winger Jake Thomas over in the corner and that effort was swiftly followed by a powerful finish by outside centre Bradley Roderick.

Thomas scored his second, Owen again involved in the build-up, with Jacob Beetham's second conversion earning a 19-0 half-time lead.

Roderick scooped up a loose ball before racing over from almost on halfway and hooker Rhodri King blasted over from close range in the 75th minute.

Scotland crossed late on through Harri Morris and Phil McIlwraith.

"They came down here to be physical and I thought we dealt with that well," said Williams.

"There were a couple of contact areas we were a bit disappointed in but I think that was more to do with some of the synergy of the players working together for the first time, so I thought we rode those early situations really well and put our stamp on the game."
