Dragons Head Coach Bernard Jackman has secured the marquee signing of British & Irish Lions tourist and Wales star Ross Moriarty on a two-year deal.
The 23-year-old will arrive at Rodney Parade next season, strengthening the back-row with his dynamic style, after signing a contract directly with the region over the weekend.
“It is with much excitement that I am able to announce the completion of my transfer to Welsh regional side, the Dragons,” commented Ross, who is renowned for his big tackles, impressive carries and devastating breaks.
“After meeting with Bernard Jackman, I was excited by the future plans of the club as the region looks to begin a new chapter in its history.
“Playing international rugby is the pinnacle of every player’s career and with the new rules, it left me with no choice but to move to Wales to further my international ambitions, especially with the Rugby World Cup ahead.”
