Ex Wales Hooker Joins Scarlets Backroom Staff

Ex Wales Hooker Joins Scarlets Backroom Staff

Former Wales hooker Emyr Phillips has joined the Scarlets as a development skills coach. Phillips was forced to retire from playing in 2018 through injury after more than 150 Scarlets appearances across 10 seasons.

The 32-year-old called time on his playing career in order to concentrate on the next leg of his rugby journey as a coach. Phillips, who won three Wales caps, will continue in his role as head coach of Welsh Premiership side Carmarthen Quins. He replaces Dai Flanagan, who has been promoted to the Scarlets’ senior set-up.
