A last gasp drop goal from super-sub Craig Warlow sealed Wales A's victory over Scotland at The Racecourse last night.
The Bridgend fly-half secured a 30-23 triumph against a spirited Scottish side that refused to let Wales run away with the game.
Tries from Mefin Davies, Tom Shanklin, Chris Wyatt and Gareth Thomas ensured an impressive scoreline but Scotland hit back owing much to the individual performance of Edinburgh fly-half Gordon Ross.
Ross scored a try, kicked two conversions, two drop-goals and a penalty to notch up 18 points for his country.
An injury-hit Welsh side did well to maintain their momentum and although Warlow struggled to settle after replacing first choice Lee Jarvis, who was suffering from a knee injury, the Bridgend no 10 produced the goods when it mattered.

The Welsh Rugby Union has awarded a unique 'President's Cap' to a specific group of players who represented their country between 1945 and 1979, but missed out on international recognition at the time.
Prabhat Mathema, the WRU's National Medical Manager explains the four part Pitchside Suspected Concussion Assessment process the IRB has devised that is being implemented throughout the Dove Men Series and in the LV= Cup this season, which includes the provision for a five minute temporary substitution to allow an assessment to take place.
