Date published: June 15 2019

The Scarlets have announced that Scotland international scrum-half Sam Hidalgo-Clyne will be leaving the club by mutual consent.

The 25-year-old signed from Edinburgh last summer and made 18 appearances in a Scarlets jersey. He joined Premiership side Harlequins for a loan spell in March, featuring strongly in their Challenge Cup campaign.

Scarlets general manager of rugby Jon Daniels said: “We wish Sam well for the future and thank him for his commitment to the Scarlets cause. I am sure he will be an asset to whichever club he joins for the next chapter of his career.”

Hidalgo-Clyne added: “I have enjoyed my time at the Scarlets. The boys are great and the fans are very passionate, but it’s best for all concerned that I continue my rugby career elsewhere.”
