Italy-based Gavin Quinnell will be taking on some of his former team mates.
Gavin Quinnell will make a welcome return to Llanelli when playing for the international-studded Barbarians side for the official opening of Parc Y Scarlets on 31st January.

Chief Executive Stuart Gallacher said: "This is a very special occasion for us as we celebrate the official opening of what is beyond doubt one of the finest bespoke rugby stadia in Europe. The new facility at Parc y Scarlets is a source of great pride to the rugby team, those who work here and all our partners and sponsors.
"This is a huge fixture for us and one we are very excited about as we welcome some great rugby names to Llanelli. We have a great line-up of players from New Zealand, Spain, Ireland, Samoa, Argentina, Scotland, England, Italy, Australia and Tonga all represented in this Barbarians squad. Put those names together and it's a very exciting mix and it will be great game to watch.
"This is something that the whole of Welsh rugby should celebrate in and we want as many people as possible to be part of this historic and memorable event - just as we did at the closure of Stradey Park. We had fantastic support and a wonderful send-off event at Stradey and hope that we can welcome in the new era at Parc y Scarlets in a similar spirit.
