Llandovery and Pontyberem Welsh internationals have left the Scarlets.

Among 13 senior players leaving the Scarlets at the end of the 2023-24 season are Wyn Jones and Kieran Hardy.

Wyn Jones, a product of Llandovery RFC, has made 136 appearances for the Scarlets since his debut in 2014.

Jones, who secured the number one jersey for Wales and the British and Irish Lions, was an integral part of the team's journey towards capturing silverware in 2017.

Contrarily, Kieran Hardy, the Pontyberem-born Wales international scrum-half, recently joined the 100-cap club when leading the Scarlets out against Glasgow.

Hardy, a Scarlets Academy graduate, has scored 25 tries in the team's colours since his debut in 2014.

He will be joining the Ospreys in the summer.

Also leaving are Ken Owens and Jonathan 'Foxy' Davies. The former announced his retirement from rugby in April, whilst the latter revealed he would be leaving the Scarlets earlier this month, with the aim of playing abroad.

Wales centre Scott Williams and Carmarthen's Dan Jones have also announced they will be leaving after more than 150 games for the club each.

Samson Lee, another Scarlets stalwart, had announced his retirement from rugby in December due to injury.

Other prominent departures include Johnny McNicholl, who returned to the Crusaders in New Zealand in March, and Ryan Conbeer and Steff Thomas who will both join Hardy at the Ospreys next season.

Iwan Shenton, Eduan Swart and Joe Jones have also left the club. Academy players Lewis Morgan, Luca Giannini, Callum Williams and Iestyn Gwilliam have also left.

The Scarlets have also lost team manager Sara Davies and strength and conditioning coach Rhys Jones.

Head coach Dwayne Peel said: "It is always a difficult and emotional time as we say farewell to players and staff including some great Scarlets who will be remembered as club legends.

"We would like to thank each player and each member of staff for the work, pride and commitment they have shown to the Scarlets during their time here.

"They can all be proud of the way they have represented this club and we wish them all well for whatever comes next."

Scarlets have also revealed that the process of negotiations with other squad members continues, with plans to disclose all players retained for the 2024-25 season in the coming weeks.
