One of the Scarlets' most promising players of the future, 19-year-old Jordan Williams will start for his country in Wales U20's clash with Italy on Friday evening.
Now fully recovered from a shoulder injury, the talented Llanelli born and bred player who plays at outside half as well as full-back is one of nine players from within the Scarlets region in Wales' U20's match day squad.
A former student of Coedcae Comprehensive School and Coleg Sir Gar, Williams has come through the ranks at Parc y Scarlets playing for the under 16s and 18s teams before being awarded a Scarlets Academy contract.
Williams started the Scarlets senior season brightly with two strong performances for his region including a two-try man of the match performance in his first start for the Scarlets against Connacht on September 15th 2012.
Jordan Williams is joined by Aaron Warren (Llandovery), Rhodri Williams (Llandovery), Gareth Thomas (Carmarthen), Carwyn Jones (Carmarthen), Sion Bennett (Carmarthen), Dan Thomas (Llanelli), Steffan Hughes (Llanelli) and Dion Jones (Llanelli) in an exciting and unbeaten Wales U20 squad.
Wales Under 20 head coach Danny Wilson has made five changes for the side's clash with Italy in Viterbo on Friday kick off 6pm (UK time).
The Welsh youngsters are unbeaten in the Under 20 Six Nations so far with wins over Ireland and France under their belt but team manager Mark Taylor warns there is no room for complacency this weekend.
"We have made some changes to see certain combinations while keeping the backbone of the side unchanged in terms of the half backs, back row and second row," he said.
"It's going to be another tough challenge for us on Friday. Italy are a good side, especially at home and after the experience of playing at Clermont Auvergne's ground a fortnight ago, we are expecting another rousing atmosphere in Viterbo.
"We have made a great start to the tournament but what's gone is gone, if it's going to count we have to go out and put in another professional performance on Friday night. Any slacking will be exposed so we must start as we did in France and not give any ground early on if we are to do well."
Scarlets Head Coach Simon Easterby said: "We wish all our international Scarlets the very best this weekend. It's positive to see so many involved with the national set-up and shows the commitment and investment that this region continues to make to the success and development of Welsh rugby as a whole.
"It's particularly encouraging for us to see a big group of our younger talent getting their chances with international honours at age-grade and the experience that will bring them. It's positive to see Jordan back now - he's impressed us with his versatility as a player and gives lots of options."
