Scarlets have confirmed the signing of winger Aled Brew on short-term deal.

The decision follows after Johnny McNicholl is set to be on the sidelines for a lengthy period following an ankle injury while Tomi Lewis is out of action with a knee surgery. The club might also miss the services of Liam Williams, Leigh Halfpenny and Steff Evans, who might be involved in Wales' campaign in the Six Nations and the Autumn Nations Cup.

Brew has already has the experience of playing for Ospreys, Dragons, Blues and Biarritz Olympique and most recently was part of Bath Rugby between 2016 and 2020.

The 6ft wing has played for Wales in nine Tests between 2007 and 2012 and represented them in the 2011 World Cup campaign.

“Unfortunately we have picked up a couple of injuries in the back three with Johnny and Tomi and we expect others to be involved with Wales this autumn," said Scarlets head coach Glenn Delaney to the club's official website.

“We have some talented youngsters coming through, but Aled brings that added top-level experience in the PRO14, TOP 14, Premiership and international rugby as we prepare for what will be a demanding few months for our squad.”

Scarlets will kick start their new Pro14 campaign with a clash against Munster at Llanelli on Saturday.
