Pi­vac keen to bring in Mo­ri­arty

The Rugby Paper - - News - ST­EF­FAN THOMAS

SCAR­LETS are plan­ning a dou­ble swoop for Wales for­ward duo Ross Mo­ri­arty and Seb Davies.

Glouces­ter back rower Mo­ri­arty is out of con­tract at the end of the sea­son, while Cardiff Blues lock Davies, 21, is yet to sign a fully pro­fes­sional deal in the Welsh cap­i­tal.

And Scar­lets boss Wayne Pi­vac hopes to step in by lur­ing the pair to Llanelli for the start of the next cam­paign.

Any deal to bring Mo­ri­arty back to Wales would have to be partly funded by the Welsh Rugby Union with the 23-yearold Lion still a tar­get for big spend­ing English and French clubs.

Pi­vac also sees Davies – who won his first se­nior Wales caps against Tonga and Samoa in the sum­mer – as a nat­u­ral re­place­ment for Tadhg Beirne who is join­ing Munster.

The Kiwi coach will have to ri­val the Blues for Davies as they plan to of­fer him a se­nior con­tract.
