Scarlets target Bath centre
THE Scarlets are in talks with Bath centre Tom Cheeseman about a possible move to Parc y Scarlets.
Swansea-born product Cheeseman was at the Scarlets' Magners League game against Glasgow on Friday evening and is understood to have had discussions with the region's head coach Nigel Davies.
The 24-year-old former Wales Under-19 cap has been at Bath for the last six years and has made 83 appearances for the West Country side.

However, he has only started eight games this season and just three in Bath's surge to the Guinness Premiership play-offs.
Cheeseman's father Trevor was a mainstay of the Swansea pack during the 1970s and 1980s, playing nearly 300 games for the club.
If Cheeseman does come on board, he will face stiff competition for the centre position, with Wales international Jonathan Davies and All Black Regan King the Scarlets' first-choice midfield.
The Scarlets also have Gareth Maule and Rob Higgitt currently on the books, while Wales Under-20 cap Scott Williams, who was man-of-the-match in last Saturday's Swalec Cup final, is set to be elevated into the senior squad for next season.
