Scarlets make Wales international number one transfer target

Gloucester and British and Irish Lions back-row Ross Moriarty has been linked with a move to PRO14 champions Scarlets.

According to Wales Online, it appears Scarlets are the frontrunners for his signature, with Newport Dragons, Cardiff Blues and English giants Northampton also keeping tabs on the 23-year-old.

And according to the Gloucester Citizen, Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac revealed at a fans event at Parc y Scarlets that Moriarty was his ‘main target.’

Moriarty admitted earlier this month that the interest in him was ‘flattering’ but is adamant he will see out the remainder of his contract which ends at the end of the season.

He told GloucestershireLive: “Personally I’m here for the season and I’m not sure what’s going to happen in the future but I’m here to play for this team and that’s what I want to do.

“I want to achieve something with this team and this group of boys and I’ll play the best I can, I’ll give as much as I can for the rest of the season and we’ll see what happens when the time comes.


“It’s always nice to have options and I’d be lying if I didn’t think it was flattering because who doesn’t want options?

“But I’m here for the season, that’s what my mind’s on and I’m just looking forward to playing for Gloucester again this season.”
