Second rows Jac Price and Morgan Jones have signed new contracts to extend their stay at the Scarlets.

The pair, team-mates for Wales U20s, have graduated from the Scarlets Academy to the senior squad and are the latest exciting young products to sign new deals.

Price, from Carmarthen, has made 24 senior appearances since making his debut in 2020.

Jones started out at Leicester but moved to West Wales via the Welsh Exiles programme. He will play his 42nd game in Scarlets colours in Saturday’s Judgement Day clash against the Dragons.

“At the age of 23, Jac and Morgan are young second rows who have a huge amount of potential in the game,” said Head Coach Dwayne Peel.

“Unfortunately, Jac picked up an injury earlier in the season which has kept him out, but he has already shown what he is capable of at this level.

“Morgan is another who is developing every game and has been making a big impact in some big games for us.

“They are constantly working hard on their game and I’m looking forward to seeing how they develop in a Scarlets jersey over the coming years.”

The pair are the latest to sign new deals, following Ryan Elias, Joe Roberts, Ioan Nicholas, Eddie James, Kemsley Mathias and Sam Wainwright.

The club have also announced the signing of Bristol Bears’ Wales international Ioan Lloyd.

A big thanks to Enfys Jones (Jac Price) and Owain Jones (Morgan Jones) for their player sponsorships this season.
