The Hampshire-born 24-year-old is a former Glamorgan cricketer who grew up in West Wales attending Pontarddulais Comprehensive School and Gorseinon Tertiary College.
He joined Llanelli rugby club in 2007, before being promoted to the Scarlets regional side in 2009 to make his debut against the Ospreys in April that year.
His eye-catching length of the field try was instrumental to the Scarlets' 16-13 Heineken Cup victory over Castres Olympique in France last weekend which secured their place in the Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-finals.
