Johnny McNicholl signs new contract to extend stay with Scarlets

Johnny McNicholl has become the latest high-profile player to agree a new deal with the Scarlets.



McNicholl, who can play full-back or wing, joined from New Zealand Super Rugby side Crusaders in 2016 and was part of the Scarlets team that lifted the Guinness PRO12 title that season.



A potent attacking runner, he made an immediate impact at Parc y Scarlets with a try on his debut against Leinster and has gone on to touch down 27 times in 59 appearances, including a memorable hat-trick in last season’s PRO14 final in Dublin.


The news that McNicholl is extending his stay in West Wales comes on the back of last week’s announcement that Grand Slam winners Jonathan Davies, Ken Owens and Rob Evans have penned new deals with the Scarlets.


“I am happy that everything has been finalised and I’m staying at the Scarlets,” said McNicholl.
“Myself and my family are settled here in Wales and have been made to feel very welcome.
“We have had some great success over the last couple of years and hopefully there is more to come.
“I’m looking forward to reconnecting with my former Crusaders coach Brad Mooar and feel there are exciting times ahead.”
