Scarlets Unveil Fitting Jersey Homage To Anthony Foley For Weekend Fixture

The tributes continue to pour in from across the globe for the late, great Munsterman Anthony Foley, with Sky Sports' incredibly moving video ode to the Killaloe man reducing half the country to a whimpering mess earlier this evening.

With Munster earlier announcing plans to honour their former captain and head coach, rival Pro12 side the Scarlets have unveiled their own homage to Foley for this weekend's European Champions Cup fixture at Saracens.

The Llanelli club will have a red number eight embroided into the centre of their jerseys for the game in London, taking to Twitter to announce they'll 'remember Anthony Foley with pride this weekend'. It's a wonderful gesture from the Welsh side.

Naturally, Munster fans were quick to offer their appreciation to their fellow reds from across the Irish Sea, with some even taking to replying in Welsh.

No doubt the Llanelli lads will receive a warm welcome when they rock back up to Limerick or Cork for the two sides' second Pro12 fixture next year.
