South Wales Scorpions' record points scorer Lewis Reece has had an about turn and has returned to Rugby League.

The 20-year old winger and proven goal-kicker signed for Pontypridd Rugby Union club in August just before the end of the Scorpions' 2011 season, but after just four months, he has decided to return to the 13-man game.

"I just missed Rugby League," said Reece, who against Italy in 2010 in his lone Welsh cap so far, converted Gareth Thomas' try.

"I also know now that the Scorpions have got a much better set-up than last season and I know that would have missed being a part of it.

"Rugby League gave me my first professional contract when I was 18 and I'm still appreciative of that to this day. I wanted to get back into Rugby League at some point but knowing that Dave Clark was part of the Scorpions this year was an extra bonus for me to return sooner.

"I'm hoping for a better season than last year and I want to play in every game. In the first season in 2010 I only played three games, that went on to only missing three in 2011 so hopefully in 2012 I'll get a regular position."

Reece started playing Rugby League with Newport Titans in 2009 and then signed for the Crusaders after playing just three games. After impressing in their under 18 National Youth League side he won caps for Wales and Great Britain Community Lions at under 18 level before initially joining the Scorpions in 2010.

Scorpions coach Dave Clark said: "I'm really delighted that Lewis had decided to re-join us. It's great to have him on board, he'll be a real boost to us as we aim for promotion in 2012."
