Powerful Welsh international prop Wyn Jones has put pen to paper to extend his stay at Scarlets.
A faithful servant of the club, the 28 year-old recently won his 100th cap in Scarlets colours and appears all too willing to add to that number.
“It is nice to be able to stay at my home region and play good rugby with a good group of boys,” Jones said.
“I am enjoying my rugby at the moment, it is a great environment to be part of, so it was an easy decision to re-sign,” said Wyn, now in his eighth season with the Scarlets.
“The squad here is as strong as I can remember, a great mix of experience and youngsters who are putting their hands up and we have ambitions to compete with the best in the PRO14 and in Europe.
“It was a proud moment for me to make my 100th appearance a few weeks ago and I feel that at the age of 28 there is plenty more to come from me and hopefully plenty more matches in a Scarlets jersey.”
Jones, who boasts 30 international caps for Wales since 2017 while garnering a reputation as one of the most powerful loose-heads in the game, first joined Scarlets in 2014 and has risen as an integral part of their pack. Head Coach Glen Delaney was in high spirits regarding the signature of one of his top forwards.
“It is fantastic news on the back of Wyn reaching a 100 appearances for us. He is Wales’s loose-head and it’s brilliant that Wyn wants to stay, sees value in staying here and that he is looking to progress and get better again,” Delaney said.
“He is a great bloke to have around the place, we love his personality, he is full of energy and right at the heart of everything that we are doing here. Having senior props like Wyn around to show the youngsters the way is really important, it is what we are trying to build.”
