Transfer News: Another talented Welsh exile heading home
The Dragons are bringing back home another talented Welsh exile after signing Wales Sevens international Rhodri Davies for next season.
The 25-year-old Pembrokeshire-born Rotherham Titans scrum half becomes the latest signing made by Bernard Jackman as he seeks to turn the Rodney Parade outfit into real contenders in the future.
Davies joins Ross Moriarty, Jordan Williams and Rhodri Williams in committing his future to the Dragons from English clubs. Jackman doesn’t want to stop there as he scouts for Welsh qualified players and senior internationals George North and Ryan Bevington are on his radar.
Davies left Wales for South Yorkshire after four highly successful seasons at Llandovery RFC where, in 65 appearances, he scored 19 tries and was selected three times for the Scarlets. Since joining Rotherham he has continued his scoring form this term with six tries in eight starts for the struggling Championship club.
“After speaking to Bernard Jackman I’m looking forward to coming back to Wales as it’s an exciting time to get involved and join the talented young Welsh players already at Rodney Parade. Given the brand of rugby Bernard wants his team to play it will suit my style,” said Davies.
