Blues Reserve Andrews out to Prove He's One of Best
Byline: Andy Howell
CARDIFF Blues reserve prop Scott Andrews is hoping to prove he can hack it at the top level when he packs down for Wales against Australia at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.
He made his Test debut as a substitute during the loss to the Barbarians last June, but makes his first Wales start as a deputy for calf injury victim Adam Jones.
Andrews has hardly started for the Blues, but hopes being given his big chance by Wales coach Warren Gatland can propel him into the spotlight.
"No-one knows whether I'm ready for this level," declared the 22-year-old. "A lot of youngsters have come into the side. Warren has given them the chances and they've taken them.
"And, hopefully, on Saturday I'll prove I am ready for this level."
Andrews Gatland has made six changes to the starting line-up beaten 21-18 by Australia at Auckland's Eden Park six weeks ago in their play-off for a World Cup bronze medal.
