Scarlets clash with Gloucester in a pre-season friendly today, taking a strong side including Rhys Priestland, Liam Williams and new club captain Ken Owens to the Premiership outfit.

In only his second game in charge of the region, coach Wayne Pivac will be hoping his side pick up more match sharpness, with the Pro12 season around the corner.

The friendly comes off the back of an entertaining draw with Bath two weeks ago - the sides battling out a 26-26 draw at the Rec.
