A new contract for Scotty!

Rob LloydNews

Scott Williams has become the latest Scarlet to extend his stay at the club.

The Wales international, in his second spell at Parc y Scarlets, has signed a new contract with his home side.

The 31-year-old centre has been in outstanding form this season, winning two URC player-of-the-match awards and leading the team in the absence of midfield partner Jonathan Davies. 

Capped 58 times for his country, Scott has made 146 appearances in a Scarlets jersey since making his debut in 2009 and was a member of the PRO12 title-winning team of 2017.

Scarlets head coach Dwayne Peel said: “Scott has been outstanding for us since his return this season. He is a player who leads by example and his performances have shown how much playing for the Scarlets means to him.

“He is a player who still has a lot to offer at the top of the game and it is fantastic news that he has committed to the Scarlets.”

Scott Williams said: “The Scarlets have shown a lot of faith in what I could do by bringing me back here and I want to repay them for giving me that chance.

“We haven’t had the results we have wanted so far this season, but it feels like we are building something under Dwayne and I am excited by what can be achieved by this group in the next few years.”

Today’s news comes on the back of new contracts for fellow Wales international Rhys Patchell and Tonga second row Sam Lousi with more announcements to follow in the coming weeks.

Scott is sponsored by Dyfed Recycling and we would like to thank the Llanelli-based business for their ongoing support of the Scarlets.
