It will prove a nostalgic return to north Wales for U20s head coach Byron Hayward. Alongside Danny Wilson, he took international rugby to Colwyn Bay for the very first time in 2012 when Parc Eirias hosted their first championship fixtures.

“It’s been a few years since I’ve been up there but the times we had there were always great,” he recalled.

“I was part of the U20s group when they first went there back in 2012 – the place was rocking. I know the players absolutely love playing there because the people of north Wales are so passionate about their rugby.”

Commenting on the announcement, Six Nations CEO, Ben Morel said: “The Under 20s Six Nations Championship is an exciting competition that showcases the next generation of young talent.

“It is an important milestone for all young players striving to represent their country at senior level in future.

“The development of age grade rugby is a key part of our strategy and we would like to thank our broadcast partners for the increased exposure they will be giving the championship and its rising stars, bringing young players to the homes of sports fans around all the home nations. We look forward to some great rugby.”
