He said: "It's been the best four weeks of my life. To get the call up and play in three big games is something else.
"It doesn't get any better than playing the three Tri-Nations sides."
He hailed Wales' fantastic win over Australia after the Wallabies prodcued a strong second half fightback to end the match trailing by just three points.
"We said at the start of the campaign we had to beat one of the three Tri-Nations sides and we've done it against Australia.
"The boys have worked hard over the last four weeks and it is a great credit to everyone involved in the team."
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
