Rob McCusker

Re-signs: Rob McCusker

The Scarlets have announced that captain Rob McCusker and winger Kristian Phillips have agreed deal extensions ahead of next season.

McCusker, who joined the academy a decade ago, is in his second season as captain whilst Phillips is looking forward to a third campaign.

The duo join Rhys Priestland, Scott Williams, Gareth Davies and Regan King in inking deals, with Simon Easterby saying more is coming.

"We are delighted to have retained both Rob and Kris on extended contracts here at Parc y Scarlets to maintain balance and experience in our squad," the coach told the Scarlets website.

"Rob has led the team with spirit this season and is a true Scarlet in terms of his values and commitment to our squad, the region as a whole and our supporters. He has worked hard to get his opportunities with the Scarlets over recent years and has taken to leadership and the responsibility of captaining the squad well.

"Kristian has settled in well since joining us a few years back and has made the most of the opportunities handed to him here at Parc y Scarlets. He's reignited his spirit for the game, shown a good work ethic, ambition and enthusiasm and has bought into our Scarlets values and goals as a team.

"He's still a young talent and offers real attacking options in the back-three alongside Liam, Jordan and Frazier."
