Wales full-back Leigh Halfpenny says he is loving rugby again after recovering from one of the most difficult seasons of his career.
Halfpenny missed most of the 2018-19 campaign after suffering concussion against Australia in November 2018.
The 31-year-old is now in fine form for Scarlets and favourite to be the Wales full-back in the Six Nations opener against Italy on 1 February.
“I am enjoying being on the field after a difficult period,” said Halfpenny.
“To overcome that from last season and be out on the field, I am just so grateful to be back playing.”
Halfpenny’s contract is up at the end of the season and fellow Wales and British and Irish Lions full-back Liam Williams is returning to Scarlets from Saracens.
His purple patch has resulted in Scarlets general manager Jon Daniels and outgoing head coach Brad Mooar saying they want to keep him at the region.
He has refused to be drawn on his long-term future but has welcomed the return of Williams who could feature for Scarlets this season if Saracens offload the full-back early.
“It’s great for Welsh rugby,” said Halfpenny.
“For the Scarlets, he is a world-class player and will bring real quality to the region.
“To have that strength in depth in the squad is what we are trying to create with boys pushing each other for places.”
Williams is battling to be fit for the Six Nations opening weekend with Halfpenny in pole position to wear the Wales number 15 jersey against Italy as they start the defence of their title.
