Wales Rugby star, Davies signs new contract with Scarlets
Wales scrum-half, Gareth Davies has signed a new contract with Scarlets until the end of the 2017-18 season.
The 25-year-old would have been out of contract at the end of this season.
Davies starred for Wales with five tries during their run to the 2015 World Cup quarter-finals after Ospreys’ Rhys Webb had been ruled out of the tournament with injury.
“Interest from elsewhere has been flattering but I always wanted to remain here,” said Davies.
Davies’ deal comes after Wales team-mate Scott Williams signed a contract that keeps him at Parc y Scarlets until 2018.
Centre Williams, 25, was in line for a new national dual contract in which the Welsh Rugby Union would pay 60% of his wages.
But the offer was withdrawn amid an accusation of a bidding war among Wales’ regions over Williams, and a dual contract was not offered to Davies either.
Centre Jonathan Davies will return to Scarlets on such a contract from Clermont Auvergne for the 2016-17 season to partner Williams in midfield.
