TOM Prydie hopes to reignite his career thanks to the Scarlets' daring brand of rugby after making the move to the Guinness PRO12 champions from the Dragons.

The 25-year-old full-back/wing has moved to Llanelli after five seasons at Rodney Parade, making 93 appearances and scoring 16 tries.

Prydie hasn't crossed the line since a brace at Treviso in March, 2015 but should get plenty of opportunities with ball in hand out west.

The Scarlets may have lost Liam Williams to Saracens this summer but boast a star-studded back line featuring Jonathan Davies, Scott Williams, Steff Evans, Hadleigh Parkes, Johnny McNicholl, Gareth Davies and Rhys Patchell along with a mobile pack.

They romped to the title by playing a high-octane style that saw them make a charge to the play-offs where they upset Leinster and Munster in Dublin.

And five-times capped Prydie hopes his new teammates will pick up where they left off in September.

"The way the Scarlets play is really attractive and that's the way that I like to play rugby," he told BBC Wales' ScrumV podcast.

"Fingers crossed if I can get a lot of game time here then hopefully things will work out and the way that the Scarlets play will really suit me.

"I am just taking things in the short-term, week by week. I am really looking forward to the friendlies first of all, playing well there and showing the coaches what I can do.

"It's about trying to get a jersey for the start of the season then, and I'm not looking any further than that to be honest.

"It's about keeping my head down and getting on with it. It's a new season and I am in a really good place at the minute, the body is feeling good and I am at the champions of the league so I couldn't' ask for any more.

"There are some really quality players in the backline with the likes of Jonathan Davies, Scott Williams and so many more. It's not just that, the way the forwards play and interact with the backs is exciting and I am looking forward to it."

Prydie made his Wales debut against South Africa in 2010 but despite having senior experience with the Ospreys, Wasps and the Dragons is still only 25.

And the Bridgend native hopes that a change of scenery – and working closely with a Test icon – can lead to a strong campaign.

"It's been enjoyable and good being in a different environment, learning new calls and working with [coaches] Wayne Pivac, Stephen Jones, Byron Hayward and Ioan Cunningham," he said.

"From day one everything we do has involved a rugby ball and has involved skills. Steve is really big on that and in between weights we have a rugby ball in our hands, constantly working and looking for the ball.

"His attention to detail is really impressive – I had a kicking session with him the first day and he picked up two or three things that no one has really picked up before in the past. They are only little details but they can make a hell of a difference on the outcome of kicks."
