Shingler commits to Scarlets

12 December 2017 13:58

Wales flanker Aaron Shingler has signed a new long-term contract with Scarlets.

Shingler made his debut for the region in the 2008/09 season and has gone on to play 170 times, winning the Pro12 title in May.

The 30-year-old back-row, capped 13 times by his country, has now agreed to extend his stay at the Llanelli-based club.

Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac said: "Aaron is an all rounder; not only his work ethic at training and the values that he brings but he's also a great player and a pleasure to coach.

"He's worked very hard at his game and has become a real leader in the group over the last 12-18 months, particularly when the internationals were away last season.

"He was a big part of the championship win last season and his hard work and diligence has paid dividends winning reselection to the Wales squad."

Shingler said: "I'm very happy to have signed a long-term deal with the Scarlets. I'm in my tenth season at the region and really enjoy playing my rugby here.

"Winning the league with this group of people was a special moment last season but we want to continue to build and develop which will lead to us hopefully winning more silverware."
