Jenkins back at The Gnoll

Neath have re-signed winger Alec Jenkins after a season with Llanelli.

The Carmarthen-born 25-year-old came through the Scarlets’ youth system and made four senior appearances for the region, before playing in the English Championship with London Welsh. He also includes Pontyberem and Carmarthen Quins among his former clubs.

He previously spent three seasons at Neath between 2009 and 2012 with an outstanding record; helping the Blacks to 47 wins in 69 games in all competitions and scoring 19 tries.

A Welsh international at Under-18, 19, 20 and 7s levels, he was a member of the Under-19 Grand Slam-winning side of 2006 that included recent full senior internationals Jonathan and Bradley Davies. That same year, he also lifted the Hong Kong 7s Plate with Wales, scoring a try in the final against Argentina.

Coach Neil Edwards said of his new signing: “I played with Alec here at Neath and he’s an outstanding rugby player and outstanding bloke. He gives 100 per cent and was disappointed to have left the club last year.

“He’s really looking forward to coming back and proud to be a Neath man again. He’s a big winger and he’ll do his job all the time. I’m confident we’ll have good displays from him next season.”
