Argentina international scrum half Gonzalo Bertranou will remain a Dragon after agreeing terms to extend his stay with the Men of Gwent.

The 27-year-old – who has made seven appearances for Dragons - has now agreed that extension to remain at Rodney Parade as the squad continues to take shape for the 2021/22 season.
Dean Ryan, Director of Dragons Rugby, said: “Gonzalo has been a revelation for us since he arrived and so we are very pleased he is staying with us.
“He has really increased the competition for nine jersey and it has helped bring out the best in players like Rhodri Williams.
“His international experience and skill set is also beneficial for the development of our young players.
“Gonzalo helps enable us to play a fast game and he is clearly enjoying the environment and looking to push himself in a new competition.”
