The Scarlets have confirmed that back row forwards Johnathan Edwards and Kieran Murphy will leave the club at the end of the season.
Openside flanker Edwards departs with 119 appearances over eight seasons under his belt while Murphy has played 41 times over the past two seasons.
Scarlets coach Simon Easterby said: "I would like to thank both players personally for all they have given to the Scarlets and for their commitment and dedication to our region both on and off the field.
"Kieran has worked very hard at his game and his conditioning and his attitude has always been very professional at Parc y Scarlets.
"He is an intelligent and mature player and having come to pro rugby late - has achieved a great deal in a short time.
"I would like to pay tribute to Jonny Edwards who has been a big part of this region for a number of years and has been a loyal servant to the Scarlets.
"Both these players are good rugby professionals, work hard and have been a real credit to our region and our rugby environment.
"They have been popular members of the Scarlets squad both with supporters and colleagues and we all wish them the very best in their future careers."
