Robinson expects Scarlets to make a Singha 7s splash

Harry Robinson is one of the most exciting talents in Welsh rugby but even he admits he must start watching over his shoulder as Scarlets prepare to showcase their youngsters at the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s.

Robinson, 22, enjoyed a stellar debut season with the Scarlets last year, dotting down 13 times as the region’s top-try scorer.

Neck surgery over the summer has put his preparations back for the new campaign but he’ll be keeping a keen eye on Scarlets’ progress at the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s.

The Singha Premiership Rugby 7s is the only competition this season where you will see the 12 Premiership Rugby clubs taking on the four Welsh Regions.

It’s back at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park this year on August 15 and Robinson’s given the seal of approval to the next generation of Scarlets.

“The tournament is cracking, you get to blood some of the new players and experience what it's like playing on a stage like this with five or six thousand people watching,” said the winger.

“Scarlets can definitely win it with the boys we have, I need to start watching my back because some of the younger boys coming through are incredible so I expect the boys to do really well here and hopefully do well in the Series Final as well.

“In sevens anything can happen on the day and anyone can beat anyone so it all comes down to determination and preparation.

“You want to measure yourself in Wales against the four regions and then you want to kick on and measure yourself against the English teams as well.

“You get to experience the match day and what it's like to play in those games and I think it's great for some of the younger boys mixed in with some of the older ones who can share their experience and show how it's done.”

Twelve months before rugby returns to the Olympics – in Rio – Premiership Rugby continues to lead the way when it comes to club 7s.

The Singha Premiership Rugby 7s will be an important competition and will start a run-in to the Olympic Games when rugby will be firmly in the world spotlight.

And Wales international Robinson added: “I came to watch last season and it was a class day and it's one after another, non-stop action and the atmosphere is a real party so it's a great place to be on a Saturday.

“When you're not on the field it's easy to get distracted but once you are on the field you step over that white line and get your game head on.

“I haven't started my full training yet, I won't be fit for the start of the season but my neck is coming along well.”
