Huge warm welcome to Geraint Llewellyn who joins us from Tata Steel. The full back who can also play on the wing has previously had spells with the Neath and Cardiff RFC. An excellent attacking full back who is a 7’s specialist will bring an exciting dimension to our back line this coming season.
Geraint said ‘I am really excited to be linking up with the Quins. I have played against the Quins the last two years for Tata and the brand of rugby they play and their professionalism really turned my head. Now the hard work starts, but I really can’t wait to get started’.

Huge warm welcome to Oliver Evans who joins us from Bridgend RFC. The 24 year old loose head prop has previously had spells with the Ospreys and Narberth and will bring power and physicality to our front row. Haverfordwest born Ollie is the better looking brother of Scarlet Rob Evans who himself made 34 league appearances for the Quins in the Welsh Premiership.
Ollie said ‘I am looking forward to the challenge of the new Indigo Premiership with the Quins. When the Quins made contact with me and talked through their plans, together with the opportunity to be closer to my west Wales roots, it was too good an opportunity to let go. The boys have made me feel really welcome and I can’t wait to get into action’.

We are delighted to welcome Morgan Griffiths back to Carmarthen Quins after a season with Cardiff RFC. Griffiths who joined the Quins in 2013 has already made 84 appearances in the mighty Quins jersey scoring 28 tries. We definitely missed his pace, power and finishing skills last season and he is brilliant to have him back on board.
Morgan has also represented Cardiff Blues A, Scarlets Premiership Select in cross border competitions.
Mogs said ‘I had a pretty frustrating season last year with injury and when I got fit after Christmas I didn’t have the chances to play, I was really grateful to the Quins for giving me game time on permit. Playing on permit made me think I played my best rugby for the Quins and the chance to move back home to the family business and link up with the Quins was just too good an opportunity to turn down, so I am delighted to be back and looking forward to a big season’.
