Sam Hidalgo-Clyne to leave Scarlets

Scrum-Half says decision is "best for all concerned"

Scotland international scrum-half Sam Hidalgo-Clyne will be leaving the Lllanelli side.

In a statement, the club say the decision is by mutual consent.

The 25-year-old signed from Edinburgh last summer and made 18 appearances in a Scarlets jersey. 

He joined Gallagher Premiership side Harlequins for a loan spell in March, featuring strongly in their Challenge Cup campaign.

Scarlets General Manager of Rugby,  Jon Daniels said:

“We wish Sam well for the future and thank him for his commitment to the Scarlets cause. I am sure he will be an asset to whichever club he joins for the next chapter of his career.”

Sam Hidalgo-Clyne said:

"I have enjoyed my time at the Scarlets. The boys are great and the fans are very passionate, but it's best for all concerned that I continue my rugby career elsewhere."
