WALES starlet Alex Cuthbert believes their third Grand Slam success in eight years is just the start of an era of success for Warren Gatland’s men.
Cuthbert scored a try in Saturday’s 16-9 victory over France at the Millennium Stadium, which completed a Six Nations clean sweep for the World Cup semi-finalists.
And the 21-year-old wing, one of seven players aged 24 or under in the Wales starting XV, is predicting that a youthful set-up will blossom into an all-conquering team.
“We’ve got the likes of myself at 21 and George North, only 19,” said Cuthbert, who has scored three tries in his first six Tests.
“We’ve still got a lot to develop as a team and as the years go by we can only get better. I am looking forward to the future. With the young players we’ve got the future is going to be awesome.”
Cuthbert has enjoyed a meteoric rise, having only taken up the game five years ago. He added: “Two months ago I was just expecting to be training with the Blues in the senior squad, let alone scoring a try in the Grand Slam game.”
