Opi Edwards admitted his "surprise" after being called up to make his debut in the FA Cup against Watford.
Edwards was one of a handful of youngsters to be given a run out and he proved a threat down the right-wing for City when given the chance against the Premier League team.
Watford ran out 3-0 winners but City's mix of youngsters and first-team regulars gave it their all.
Edwards described his debut as "crazy."
He told BCTV: "It's great to have been called up. I tried my best but it was a hard game in the FA Cup against a big team like Watford. I did my best but it's been a crazy experience. I loved it.
"I was surprised [to be recalled]. I wasn't expecting it at all. I was due to come back on around January 22nd so I was planning to try and get my way into the first team then but I was called up for Watford. It was crazy."
"You have no time [to prepare], it's been crazy. Compared to what I have been used to, the players are much stronger, quicker and it has been a good learning curve for me.
"Watford pined us in our half at times and it was hard to concentrate. I needed to be on my A-game all the time because we were so pinned back. I thought we had chances and I could have done better.
Reflecting on being placed up against Premier League opponents and playing in the FA Cup, Edwards added: "I think that's the best way to learn. I have learnt a lot from this game,
"It's such a big competition to play in. Today I have played in it and it was crazy."
Tom Lindsay will retire from professional rugby at the end of his contract, following sixteen years in the game.
