The Scarlets have confirmed that Mark Taylor is to leave the club with ‘immediate effect’.
A statement issued this morning reads: “Scarlets Team Manager Mark Taylor will leave the region, with immediate effect, for personal reasons.
“The 52-times capped centre, and British & Irish Lion, joined the region ahead of the 2016-17 season. Well-respected by Scarlets colleagues and peers across the rugby fraternity Taylor was a part of the management team when the Scarlets were crowned Guinness PRO12 champions in May 2017.
“A replacement will be recruited in due course to ensure preparations for the forthcoming season are unaffected.
“Everyone at the Scarlets wishes Mark all the very best for the future.”
