Ospreys' starlet Tom Prydie has been tipped for greatness by one of the Wales' original star youngsters Keith Jarrett.
The Newport legend was just 18 when he made his debut for Wales bagging a then record haul of 19 points in the 34-21 victory over England.
And Jarrett believes versatile Pyrdie, who will become the Wales’ youngest ever player if he features for Wales in the RBS 6Nations campaign, should be thrown in the deep end of international rugby like he was in 1967.
“I hope he does get his chance and wins his first cap during the Six Nations – I don’t think Warren Gatland has picked him for window dressing,” Jarrett told the South Wales Argus.
“I don’t think he’s going to start against England and it will depend on how Wales’ other results go.
“If Wales win their first three games, I can’t see him playing in the fourth game.
“But Warren Gatland or someone he trusts has seen that he has got the potential.
“The most important things is just to enjoy it and don’t worry too much.
“He will have friends around him just like I had (in Newport teammates Dai Watkins and Stuart Watkins) when I won my first cap.”
