Llanelli Scarlets

The Llanelli Scarlets is one of the best known names in world rugby. Success in domestic and European rugby and giant-killing feats against international touring sides has secured a niche in history for the name Llanelli. The Llanelli Scarlets was formed at the beginning of season 2003/04 as one of five (later to become four) Welsh regions.

Llanelli has produced an almost endless list of talented and world renowned players, from Albert Jenkins in the early 1900s to legends including Ken Jones, Delme Thomas, Phil Bennett, Derek Quinnell, Ray Gravell and, in more recent times, Ieuan Evans and Scott Quinnell.

In total 169 Wales internationals and 21 British Lions, as well as Lions coaches including the legendary Carwyn James (New Zealand 1971) have been bred at Llanelli. Llanelli were the undisputed Cup Kings of Wales having lifted the Welsh Cup 12 times in 17 final apperances. In the 1992-93 season the club won the Best Team In Britain Trophy after achieving the unique treble of winning the league, the cup, and defeating world champions Australia. It is a remarkable story of success in the world of sport.
