Veteran Wales centre Jonathan Davies will captain the Scarlets in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship clash against the Stormers in Llanelli on Saturday.
Despite suffering from a 13-man injury list, the Scarlets have still been able to name a fairly strong matchday-23 to face the Stormers in the key URC match.
Davies is at outside centre alongside fellow Wales international Johnny Williams, while British & Irish Lions back Liam Williams makes a return from injury on the right wing.
62-capped scrumhalf Gareth Davies starts in a halfback partnership with Sam Costelow, with Rhys Patchell on the bench.
If the Scarlets manage more match points than the Ospreys – who take on Vodacom Bulls in Swansea on Friday night – they will lift the Welsh Shield and secure Champions Cup qualification for next season.
Scarlets – 15 Tom Rogers, 14 Liam Williams, 13 Jonathan Davies (c), 12 Johnny Williams, 11 Ryan Conbeer, 10 Sam Costelow, 9 Gareth Davies, 8 Sione Kalamafoni, 7 Josh Macleod, 6 Aaron Shingler, 5 Jac Price, 4 Tom Price, 3 Javan Sebastian, 2 Shaun Evans, 1 Steff Thomas.
Subs: 16 Daf Hughes, 17 Phil Price, 18 WillGriff John, 19 Morgan Jones, 20 Tomas Lezana, 21 Kieran Hardy, 22 Rhys Patchell, 23 Joe Roberts.
