Speaking ahead of the Guinness PRO12 final against Munster today, Scarlets centre Scott Williams says the current squad is the strongest it's been in his ten years at the region.
The Scarlets have named an unchanged side for the final.
It's the first time the region has made it to the Championship match.
I’ve been here 10 years and we’ve made one semi final. I’m not that old but when you get older you realise there are less opportunities to win silverware and when the opportunities come around you have to take them with both hands. We’ve played in some big games this season and those boys have shown that they can compete with the best.
I think this is probably the best squad we’ve had, definitely since I’ve been here. We’ve always had a good 15, we’ve now got boys competing. Some boys are really unlucky not to be involved, some boys are really unlucky to be on the bench. That’s a good thing; you can’t win trophies with 15 men. That’s why we believe we can go all the way. We’re definitely not here to make up the numbers. We’re all good mates, that’s the special thing really. I think you could see after the game [against Leinster], the amount of hard work we’ve put in this season, we didn’t get the best of starts but we’ve had an incredible run of wins since then. Since I was a kid the only team I’ve wanted to play for is the Scarlets and it’s nice that we’ve got an opportunity this weekend to win the league.
Scarlets and Wales loosehead prop Rob Evans is the latest homegrown player to commit his future to the region.
The 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a new deal that will see him remain at Parc y Scarlets, and in West Wales, for the foreseeable future.
He joins fellow Welsh star and Scarlets captain Ken Owens, alongside homegrown talents Steff Evans, Will Boyde and Dan Jones as well as Hadleigh Parkes.
I am really pleased to have signed a new deal with the Scarlets. The boys did well whilst we’ve been away in camp keeping us in the race for the PRO12 top four and it’s great to be back at Parc y Scarlets and do all I can to help us reach that goal.
Scarlets Assistant Coach Stephen Jones has signed a new deal to stay with the club, joining fellow coach Ioan Cunningham in agreeing fresh terms.
Carmarthen born Jones, who made over 300 appearances for Llanelli and Scarlets over a 14 year period with the region, joined the Scarlets coaching team ahead of the 2015-16 season as Backs Coach.
I’m pleased to extend my time with the Scarlets, especially as we head towards a pivotal period in the season. We’ve been working tirelessly behind the scenes over the last few years and the players have bought into the ethos with great enthusiasm and energy. We’re seeing the improvements on the field and it’s great to see such a high number of the region’s young talent making a name for themselves in the PRO12 and stepping up to the plate in Europe.
The Scarlets are currently locked in a tight competition for a spot in the Guinness PRO12’s top four with only seven rounds of the regular seasons remaining.
