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.

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.
