When did you first play? 

We moved to Wales from England when I was five or six. I played football, then started rugby at Monmouth School and loved it.

What is your favourite position and why?

I’ve played centre and full-back but mostly wing this year. I prefer full-back because you get the ball more, but I’m only 19 so I’m happy anywhere.

When did you join the Dragons? 

I played age grades there from U14 and I was pretty much full-time with them in my last year at school.

What were your aims at the start of this season?

I thought last summer’s Junior World Cup went well and I was confident after that and hoping to get some starts for the Dragons.

And by November you were playing for Wales!

Yes! It has happened quickly but I don’t feel fazed. I watched the South Africa game thinking I’d love to be playing and two weeks later I was! My debut was amazing, very special.

You are following in Jamie Roberts’s footsteps by doing a medical degree… 

I’m trying to do the first year full-time. I was at the hospital from 9 to 5 on one Friday, then scored two tries for the Dragons that evening against Zebre! My aim outside rugby this year is to pass my exams!

RW verdict: Fast-tracked into the XV to play Tonga, Amos has already impressed the Wales coaches.
