Ken Owens, said: "Playing for Wales is a massive honour and I enjoyed every minute of it. For me it represents the achievement of a lifelong ambition and years of very hard work.
"I was nervous when I first got onto the pitch but then I settled down and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I got a few carries with the ball and I felt the scrum went well which I am happy with."
