Varndell leaves Bristol for Scarlets

Scarlets have signed Bristol winger Tom Varndell on a deal until the end of the season.

Varndell has been training with the Pro14 side and the Welsh region announced his signature on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old is the Premiership’s all-time record try scorer with 92 and will now switch his focus to Scarlets’ bid to retain the Pro14 title.

During his three-year stay at Bristol, Varndell chalked up 50 appearances and scored 35 tries.

Posting on Twitter, Varndell – who has four England caps – wrote: “Thank you everyone at @Bristol_RFC especially the players. It’s been great.

“Good luck with the remainder of the season [see you] at the end of season for a few hopefully to celebrate a great finish.

“Very excited to get stuck in with @scarlets_rugby for what is a huge period [for] them.”
