Date published: May 4 2015

Scarlets have announced that number eight Morgan Allen will make the switch to their PRO12 region from the Ospreys ahead of next season.

The powerful 25-year-old ball carrier, who has played 53 times for Ospreys, is the latest new recruit to be revealed ahead of the upcoming 2015/16 term.

"We are pleased to confirm that Morgan will be joining us next season," head coach Wayne Pivac confirmed to the Scarlets' official website on Monday.

"He is a strong ball carrier and will add another dimension to our backrow giving us another option at 8. At only 25 years of age Morgan has plenty of rugby left in the tank and will no doubt learn and continue his development under the leadership and guidance of experienced guys in our squad like John (Barclay)."
