New Gloucester signing, fly half Nicky Robinson, made his first international appearance for Wales against the USA after a three year absence, and made the most of the opportunity scoring 12 points in a 48-15 win.
Wales ran home six tries as they ended their tour of North America with a comfortable win against the United States in Chicago with Robinson contributing 12 points from three conversions and 2 penalties.
Robinson, who joins Gloucester from Cardiff Blues this summer, was an unused replacement in Wales first international of the tour against Canada but laid down a marker against the USA according to former Wales captain Gwyn Jones.
I thought there was more value in playing him for longer," Jones told BBC Wales' Scrum V programme.
"If you look back at the last two games he's been our best player and he only played for an hour, or just over."
"We're building for 2011 and (Dan) Biggar will still only be 21, whereas Nicky will be in the prime of his career if he continues the way that he is."
Robinson himself told BBC Sport Wales that he was just thankful of the opportunity to pull on a Wales jersey again.
"It was really pleasing for me to get a start," he told BBC Sport Wales.
"But I was disappointed to come off because you want to play every minute of a Test match, but that's the coach's decision."
"In the first half we scored some good tries and then hopefully the second half we were going to go out and put them to bed early."
"Unfortunately we didn't do that and let them back into the game."
"We weren't clinical enough, made a lot of handling errors unfortunately and maybe the scoreline didn't reflect exactly how we played."
"We were better, fitter and stronger than them, we are pleased with the victories but that was the bare minimum."
"We scored a few more points [against the USA]. The boys put the effort in and that's all we can ask."
