New Gloucester Rugby signing Nicky Robinson has been recalled to the Wales side to play the USA in Chicago on Saturday.
Robinson will pair up at half back with Dwayne Peel with outgoing Gloucester scrum half Gareth Cooper and fly half Dan Biggar dropping down to the bench folloiwng the 32-23 win over Canada last weekend.
Wales Tour Coach Robin McBryde today stated that it's a great opportunity for Robinson who won the last of his 12 caps in Argentina in 2006.
"It was a tough call on Dan Biggar, who was man of the match, deservedly so, against Canada. He's really set the standard for Nicky."
"Nicky deserves a start, we feel, so I'm sure he'll be looking to make the most of it."
"His kicking game, his all-around passing ability, he's a running threat and I think he's got a good balance to his game at the moment, hence his inclusion on the trip and he's got an opportunity on Saturday."
