Scarlets have agreed a loan deal with Leicester Tigers for full-back Clayton Blommetjies.

The South African, who arrived from Toyota Cheetahs last summer, has moved to Welford Road for the remainder of the season as injury cover.

Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac said: “We are fortunate to have a number of high-quality options in our back three at the moment so have agreed to Leicester’s request for a loan deal for Clayton.”

Blommetjies has made three starts in six competitive appearances this season. He has also been playing in the Principality Premiership for Llanelli RFC.

The Scarlets take on Zebre in the penultimate round of the regular Guinness PRO14 season at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday (5.15pm kick-off).
