Scarlets' latest international, prop Rob Evans, has committed his future to the Welsh region after making his first start in Rome.
 
Scarlets' 200th Welsh international, and 212th international player, made his debut less than a fortnight ago at the Millennium Stadium against Ireland and secured his first international start on Saturday, in Wales' victory over Italy.
 
The 2014/15 season has been something of a breakthrough for the young Pembrokeshire product on the regional stage, making 19 appearances for the Scarlets thus far, including a debut try against Leicester Tigers in the Champions Cup. 

Scarlets Head Coach Wayne Pivac said: "We are pleased to announce that Rob has extended his contract with us here at the Scarlets. He has made great strides this season and will undoubtedly have developed further having had a little international experience and coming up against some of the world's best props during this season's European Rugby Champions Cup campaign.
 
"We are developing strength in depth at front row with a good crop of homegrown talent that will continue to develop together over the coming seasons ensuring a bright future for region.”
 
Scarlets loosehead prop Rob Evans said: "It's a fantastic opportunity for me to continue my development with the Scarlets and I'm pleased to have signed a new deal to stay with the region.
 
"I've grown up supporting the Scarlets and am really enjoying my rugby with the region at the moment. I'm looking forward to finishing what has been a great season so far, for me personally, on a high helping the Scarlets secure our place in the top six and next season's top flight of European rugby.”
