Exeter-bound Corey Baldwin to leave Scarlets at the end of the season

Rob Lloyd News

Scarlets back Corey Baldwin will be joining Exeter Chiefs ahead of the 2020-21 season after agreeing a deal to join the Gallagher Premiership leaders.

The 21-year-old, who is English qualified having been born in Surrey, has made 24 appearances for the Scarlets, including 16 this season.

Baldwin has been with the Scarlets since the age of 17, combining his studies with his rugby development through the Academy.

He made a try-scoring debut in an Anglo-Welsh Cup clash against the Dragons four years ago and touched down for tries in both the European Challenge Cup ties against London Irish this season.

Scarlets head coach Brad Mooar said: “We are disappointed to see Corey leaving the Scarlets, he has come through the Academy system here and is a player with a bright future who has thrived in our environment this season.

“We wish him well at Exeter and hope to see him back at Parc y Scarlets one day.

“In the meantime, there’s work to do and Corey remains a big part of our run-in in both the Guinness PRO14 and Challenge Cup this season.”
