Joe Roberts and Steff Evans are set for lengthy spells on the sidelines because of injury, the Scarlets can confirm.

Roberts is set for an operation on a knee injury which will keep him out of action until the 2024-25 season, while Evans (pictured) has undergone surgery on the Achilles tendon he injured late on against Benetton.

Wales hooker Ryan Elias is available for Saturday’s URC round 13 fixture against Glasgow after recovering from a hamstring injury. Taine Plumtree (shoulder) and Jarrod Taylor (hamstring) are close to making their returns but won’t be available this weekend.
