Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac is determined to finish his reign with a flourish before he even thinks about his next challenge with Wales.

The man who ended a 13 year wait for silverware in West Wales will take charge of his final match at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday.

The crunch clash with Zebre will go a long way to determining whether Scarlets clinch a Heineken Champions Cup spot for next season, while there are still slim hopes of reaching the Guinness PRO14 playoffs. And Pivac has urged his men to put their turbulent season behind the and finish in style.

“It has been a difficult season but technically there is a lot to play for,” he said. “For us we have two games of rugby to focus on ourselves and not the opposition and looking to put in some really good performances.

“It’s our last game at home against Zebre so we need to put in a really special performance for the people who aren’t going to be here next year and the supporters that have supported us through a turbulent season. We want to finish with a bang with a couple of good performances.”

Pivac arrived as forwards coach back in 2014 but was quickly installed as head coach following the departure of Scarlets legend Simon Easterby to Ireland.

His attacking blueprint brought huge success to Parc y Scarlets as opposition sides failed to get to grips with the fast and furious approach.

This season has been marred by injuries, but they can still maintain their place at European rugby’s top table with a win over Zebre and a Judgement Day triumph.

Pivac will say farewell to those who have supported him through his reign this weekend, but he says it is strictly business until the final whistle blows this weekend.

“For me it will be just another game of rugby, first and foremost I will be worried about getting the result and then I can reflect on things after the game,” added Pivac.

“Nothing will change in terms of our match day routines but we’re looking for a good performance on and off the ball which we’ve struggled with this season.

“The top four isn’t in our psyche, we have to look at the things in our control. We have 10 points on offer and we would like to take as many of those points as we can, and then we’ll see where it’s good enough to finish.”
