Dragons are upbeat about their new development which sees Welsh legend Jamie Roberts returning to the club after a stint with the Stormers in South Africa.
Roberts is a veteran of 94 tests for Wales as well as three for the British & Irish Lions.
Dragons director of rugby Dean Ryan said:
“It’s great news that we are bringing someone of Jamie’s quality to the region and we know he will make an immediate impact for us.
“He remains an ambitious and driven player and is looking forward to coming into our environment.
“To have his experience on the pitch will be a great addition to us, and he will also be an excellent mentor for the younger players in our squad.”
In addition to the Stormers, Roberts, 33, has been involved with the likes of Cardiff Blues, Racing 92, Harlequins and Bath in a decorated career spanning fifteen years.
