Scarlets tighthead prop Rhodri Jones will leave the region at the end of the season to join the Ospreys.
24-year-old Jones, from Machynlleth, made his Scarlets debut as a replacement in the Heineken Cup match against Leicester Tigers in October 2010.
He went on to make 16 appearances in his first season with the region. He made his 100th regional appearance in Friday evening’s victory over Edinburgh Rugby.
His Wales debut came in June 2012, against the Barbarians, at the Millennium Stadium.
It was an honour to have played my 100th game for the Scarlets last weekend and I will give my all to the region as we challenge for a PRO12 play-off position from now until the end of the season.
I’ve enjoyed my time at the Scarlets and would like to thank everyone for their help and support during my time here.
