Scarlets have announced the signings of Scotland international Sam Hidalgo-Clyne and his fellow scrum-half Kieran Hardy in a double swoop.

The duo will help provide options at number nine, with Scarlets’ first-choice Gareth Davies a Wales regular and his understudy Aled Davies moving to the Ospreys this summer.

Hidalgo-Clyne, 24, joins from Edinburgh, while the 22-year-old Hardy – who came up through the youth ranks at Scarlets and made his professional debut for the region in 2014 – has been plying his trade for English Championship side Jersey.

Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac said: “We’re delighted to be in a position to welcome both Kieran and Sam to the Scarlets.

“Kieran makes a return to his home region having had a couple of seasons to continue his development in the Championship, with Sam bringing with him a wealth of Guinness PRO14 and international experience from Edinburgh.

“With Aled moving on and Gareth away during the international window it’s important to have strength in depth in each position.”
