Scarlets have added to their pool of scrum-half resources with the signing of Will Homer.
The 24-year-old is a former England Under-20s international who spent four years at Gallagher Premiership side Bath and two seasons in the English Championship with Jersey Reds.
He will battle it out with Gareth Davies, Kieran Hardy and Dane Blacker for the No. 9 jersey at Parc y Scarlets.
Scarlets head coach Glenn Delaney said: “Will is a highly-rated scrum-half with pace and a real eye for the gap. He will add another option to an exciting group of nines we already have here.
“There is going to be a lot of international rugby in the coming season and we expect Gareth to be away for long periods so it is important we have options in all positions. It has been great to have Will here with us and he has settled in well to the group.”
