Harry Robinson hopes to see more ball at the Scarlets
Wales wing Harry Robinson can't wait to help get the Scarlets' back-line firing this season as he settles in to his new life at the west Wales region.
The 21-year-old has made the move along the M4 to Parc y Scarlets after falling down the pecking order at the Cardiff Blues. Robinson made a try-scoring debut for Wales against the Barbarians and then gained two more caps on last year's tour of Japan.
But the flying wing only scored one try in 20 games at the BT Sport Arms Park last season and is desperate to reignite his career at the Scarlets.
"I thought I held my own out in Japan for Wales last year but for whatever reason I couldn't kick-on with the Blues," said Robinson.
"I love the way the Scarlets play and it's the way I want to play so I can see myself fitting in very well down here. I always grew up watching the way the Scarlets play.
"Their free flowing, expansive rugby is the type of rugby I want to be involved in. When the opportunity came up, I grabbed it with both hands."
Cardiff-born Robinson reckons he can only improve by lining-up in the exciting Scarlets back-line alongside fellow internationals Rhys Priestland, Scott Williams, Liam Williams and Gareth Davies.
But he admits he will have to fight for his place with the likes of Mike Tagicakibau, Kristian Phillips, Jordan Williams and Frazier Climo to contend with for a place in the club's back-three
"Every winger here sees an open door and a chance to stake their claim for the wing spot. The Scarlets back line is top class and exciting and they also have a strong forward platform to play off," said Robinson.
"They get go forward, the way they play and score tries is right up my street. I've got a hell of a lot to improve on but hopefully I will. I've got so much to learn and with Rhys Priestland, Scott Williams and Regan King here I feel like I can learn. I haven't felt out of place, I came and slipped right in."
