Dragons have announced the resigning of full-back Jordan Williams which will extend his four year stay in Newport, Wales.

The Welshman joined the Men of Gwent after a stint in the Premiership with Bristol Bears in 2018 and is now over half way to becoming a Dragons centurion.

It’s 13 tries and counting for the shifty runner who is a key player in the URC side’s attack


Dean Ryan, director of Dragons Rugby, said: “Jordan brings real threat in open field for us and is an important player as we look to build and move forward.

“It’s been a mixed year for him in terms of injury, but we want him back playing regular rugby, so we’re delighted he has re-signed with us.

“Our challenge is to increase depth and Jordan is crucial to that, ensuring he keeps pushing on and raising his levels.

“Jordan can get even better and we’re excited that he will do that as a Dragon in the coming seasons.”

Despite being a Scarlets academy player and senior player, receiving over 50 caps, Williams was happy to put pen to paper and remain with the rival Dragons.

Williams said: “I’m really pleased to extend my stay at Dragons, after enjoying the last four seasons with the region.

“It’s been a frustrating season at times for me due to injury, but I’m now looking forward to finishing this campaign strongly and taking that momentum into next year.”
