RALF ROBERTS played his part as Wales U16s eased to a 48-4 win over Scotland in the rugby league international.

Roberts, who began playing rugby league at the tender age of four years old with Bradley Raiders, scored two tries for the Welsh team, who can now look forward to next month’s winner-takes-all encounter with England in the U16 Four Nations.

Wales looked in control for the most of the game against Scotland and after Jack Sheppard burrowed over, Roberts grounded for the next score.

Harley Smith added the third on 16 minutes, moving at sped to score, and then seven minutes later, Roberts sped through the defence for his second try under the sticks.

Last year, Roberts was picked up by the Warrington Wolves and he began their prospects programme before signing a scholarship in January of this year.

He currently trains twice weekly with the Warrington Wolves.

Wales take on England at The Gnoll in Neath on Saturday, August 3 with both sides heading into this encounter with two wins under their belts.

It will be a repeat of last year’s decider which Wales won 38-18 in Leigh.
