Blade Thomson has signed a new contract to stay at Parc y Scarlets, confirms the club.

The versatile back-rower, capped 10 times by Scotland, arrived in Llanelli from Super Rugby side the Hurricanes in 2018.

He has made 31 appearances, earning himself an international call-up to Gregor Townsend’s Scotland squad. 

Blade appeared for the Scots at the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan and has delivered some impressive displays in a Scarlets jersey this season.

It is fantastic that Blade has signed a new deal with the Scarlets,” said head coach Glenn Delaney.

“Blade is a real athlete, a player who can produce game-changing moments as he showed in our derby win over the Ospreys over Christmas.

“He has proven himself at international level, is a player who has a lot of experience in Super Rugby and has grown into an important and influential member of our squad.”

Blade becomes the latest international to have re-signed for the Scarlets, following Wyn Jones, Aaron Shingler and Ryan Elias. 

Highly-rated youngsters Carwyn Tuipulotu and Morgan Jones have also agreed new deals, along with prop Javan Sebastian.
