“I am looking forward to working under Dwayne and the coaching team in pre-season and challenging for a place in the side ahead of the start of the new campaign.

“Scott has proven his pedigree throughout his career. He is a determined and driven character, a player the boys look up to and we are all looking forward to seeing him in a Scarlets shirt again.”
