Ben Morgan (centre) believes Scarlets controlled the last game against Connacht

Scarlets forward Ben Morgan has not ruled out accepting a call-up for Wales when he is eligible through residence.

Speaking to Scrum V, the number 8 said it would be "a dream" to play international rugby, but it was "too early" to say who for.

"My focus is these crucial few games for the club, play consistently well and hope things can progress then."

Morgan, 22, who was born in Bristol, would qualify to play in next year's Six Nations for Wales.

He confirmed there had been contact from the Welsh and English management last season but said he had decided to concentrate on overcoming injury niggles to be right for this season.

This saw him turn down the opportunity to play for England Saxons in the Churchill Cup. Had he done so, he would have been unable to play for the full Welsh side.

Describing Scarlets' narrow defeat to Connacht, Morgan said: "We're disappointed obviously, but Connacht is a tough place to go, but we felt we controlled the game enough to win.

"There's a desire to go out and play, but we've got to be tighter and get rid of our errors. As Nige [Nigel Davies] said, we had lots of possesion and we should have done more."

"We are looking to get off to a good start this season and we've targetted the next few games."

Scarlets travel to Pro12 champions Munster on Saturday.
