NEWPORT Gwent Dragons fly-half Arwel Robson is determined to help Wales finish the World Rugby U20 Championship on a high after another last-gasp defeat.

The Welsh youngsters will lock horns with Italy at Avchala Stadium in Tbilisi on Sunday (kick-off 2pm) for seventh place in the tournament.

They looked set to face Australia for fifth when leading the Scots 25-22 in the closing stages on Tuesday thanks to Robson’s stunning finish in the right corner and touchline conversion.

However, they failed to gather the restart and Scotland went on to take the spoils thanks to a converted try with three minutes left.

Robson, who made his Dragons debut last November at Leicester in the Anglo-Welsh Cup after some excellent outings with Newport, says Wales must swiftly rally for one last blast.

“The boys were absolutely gutted with the end. We must have gone through 10 to 15 phases and for them to score in the last few minutes is heart-breaking,” said the 20-year-old.

“But it is about being positive, keeping our heads up and going out with a bang against Italy.

“Personally it's going to be a massive game and I want to finish on a high, it will be the last time I pull on an Under-20s jersey and I want to make sure I leave everything out there."

It was another defeat in a tight encounter after Pool A losses to the Aussies and England, who will take on New Zealand in Sunday’s final.

Robson said: "In the first half they had the wind and they did well to keep us down in our 22 and we did exactly the same in the second half but when we had our chances we weren't as clinical.

"It's gutting, in the second half we dominated territory but we let go of a few key chances. We need to be more clinical and once we have scored we need to switch on and hold out.

"But fair play to Scotland, they deserved that. In the last five minutes they put us on our line and they broke us in the end."
