It keeps getting better and better for Neath wing Dafydd Howells. Originally selected for the Wales training squad, he then made the cut for the slimed down party to tour Japan and then this morning news came through that he had been selected for his first cap in the first test this Saturday.
Great reward for him, who, despite only playing a handful of games for us last season showed immense promise scoring some blistering tries including a fantastic individual length of the field effort against Llandovery that was nominated for try of the season and that fabulous effort in the cup final against Pontypridd.
Set your alarms – you can watch Dafydd in action on BBC One at 6:00am.
Good luck to him (and ex-blacks Jonathan Spratt & Tavis Knoyle) as well as the rest of the team.
