Ross Moriarty has been tipped for "bigger and bigger things" by Wales assistant coach, Robin McBryde following his display in Wales' Six Nations clash against England.
The 22-year-old Gloucester back-row forward is just 14 games into his Test match career and his current form has made him a contender for this summer's British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand.
Wales have a number of choices in the back-row department when they resume against Scotland at Murrayfield in nine days' time.
Taulupe Faletau returned from injury by replacing Moriarty in the second-half against England, while both of Wales' 2013 Lions flankers - Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric are also options for interim head coach Rob Howley.
Howley is not due to name his starting line-up until next Thursday, and lock Luke Charteris could be in the selection frame.
Charteris missed Wales' appointments with Italy and England due to a fractured hand.
Wales have suffered one defeat against Scotland since 2003, but their displays against Ireland and France this month mean that impressive record could come under serious threat.
