Owen Williams looking to continue star role for Scarlets
OWEN Williams has enjoyed a starring role on the regional stage over the past three weeks.
And the 20-year-old fly-half is hoping he can continue to play his part as the Scarlets' battle for a place in the RaboDirect Pro12 play-offs.
Williams has been one of the major pluses for the West Wales region since the turn of the year.
Outstanding for Llanelli RFC in the British and Irish Cup, he backed that up with impressive game-management and goal-kicking in the Scarlets' LV= Cup ties against Sale and Leicester.

That earned him his league debut against Connacht last weekend and once again the Wales Under-20s cap didn't disappoint, delivering a personal haul of 20 points in a 25-15 victory that keeps the region's hopes of a top-four place very much alive.
"I have been really pleased to get a few starts, but it is also nice that we have had a couple of wins. It is an important part of our season," said the Ystradgynlais product, who played much of his age-grade rugby in Ospreys colours.
"You don't get many opportunities in professional rugby so when they come you have got to try to make the most of it."
In the last three matches Williams has helped himself to a tally of 48 points, with the stats revealing an 83 per cent success rate off the tee.
"The team has been getting into good positions and fortunately I have been able to slot them over," he added.
"At the start of the season I just wanted to play a few games for the Scarlets and show what I could do and keep developing as a player.
"There is a lot of competition for places here, but hopefully I can get another start against Munster this weekend."
The Scarlets trained at Narberth RFC yesterday as part of a two-day camp in Pembrokeshire.
Flanker Johnathan Edwards is back in full training after recovering from a hamstring tear, while head coach Simon Easterby could have a number of his Six Nations squad available for Saturday's key clash with Munster at Parc y Scarlets (6.30pm).
"It may be as many as four or five, but we won't know for certain until Thursday," said Easterby.
