Team to take on Quins at the Parc

Saturday will be derby day at Parc y Scarlets as Llanelli welcome Carmarthen Quins in the latest round of the Indigo Group Premiership Cup.

Quins on the other hand have secured victories over Bridgend Ravens and Swansea, currently sitting third in the West table.

Ioan Hughes, Harrison Button and Joe Roberts to retain their places in the backline, with Hughes moving from outside half to fullback and Roberts moving from centre to the wing.

Scarlets’ Tyler Morgan and Steff Hughes partner in midfield with Josh Phillips and Luke Davies lining up at outside half and scrum half respectively.

Scarlets loosehead prop Phil Price joins fellow regional player Alex Jeffries in the front row alongside hooker Morgan MacRae.

Ellis Hopkins joins Ed Couzens in the second row with Nathan Hart, Caine Rees-Jones and Ryan Jenkins lining up in the back row.

Head Coach Paul Fisher said; “We’re aware that the Quins will be a big threat in terms of set-piece and it’s important that we focus on getting parity in that area of the game.

“A solid set-piece will give the backline a platform to work from and show their attacking flair.

“Phil Price, Steff Hughes and Tyler Morgan bring regional experience into the side, which we believe will have a positive influence on our young side.”
