Rob LloydNews

Flying wing Tomi Lewis is heading back to the Scarlets for next season after signing from Jersey Reds.

Lewis has been in dazzling form for the Championship leaders, scoring 11 tries in the league this season, including some spectacular individual efforts.

A Wales 7s and U20s international, the 24-year-old will return to Parc y Scarlets after a season with the Reds.

Having recovered from a long-term knee injury, Lewis left the Scarlets at the end of the 2021-22 campaign with two senior appearances to his name.

He has been a big hit at Jersey, with his scoring feats helping propel the islanders to the cusp of the league title.

“I’m looking forward to coming back to the Scarlets and challenging for a place in the side next season,” said the Academy product.

“It’s been great to see the boys reach the Challenge Cup semi-finals and it’s exciting to see the style of play to get them there.

“I’ve had a great year at Jersey, played a lot of rugby and feel I’ve really developed as a player. I’d like to thank my team-mates, coaches and all the staff at the club and hopefully, we can finish on a high by lifting the Championship title this weekend.”

Scarlets Head Coach Dwayne Peel said: “Tomi is a real talent, a player with genuine pace and an eye for the try line. He has been on fire for Jersey this season and will have learnt a lot from his season in the Championship.

“He will add to an exciting pool of back-three players we already have at the club.”
