Sam heads to New Zealand

Prop Sam O’Connor is preparing for another winter of rugby as he heads to New Zealand’s Linwood RFC for three months!

Sam will be joined by fellow Scarlets Academy member Eddie James at the south island club, a club that Scarlets coach and double World Cup winner Ben Franks has represented, and helped set up the summer sabbatical.

We’d like to wish Sam all the very best as he continues with his rugby development.
