Dragons have announced the signing of Wales international Rob Evans ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Evans made his professional rugby career with Welsh club Carmarthen Quins in 2010 and made a switch to Scarlets in 2013.

The 30-year-old has racked up over 150 appearances for Scarlets and was part of their squad that clinched the Pro12 title in 2017.

He made his debut for Wales in March 2015 against Ireland and has gone on to earn 39 caps for his country including the 2019 Six Nations campaign where they went on to win the Grand Slam.

“I’m happy to be joining and excited to get going next year," he told.

“It feels like the right time for a change and, with the other signings and what Dean wants to build here, it will be brilliant and I’m looking forward to it.

“I love playing at Rodney Parade where the fans are really loud and intimidating. I’m looking forward to being a part of that and having them on my side.”

Dragons Director of Dragons Rugby Dean Ryan is thrilled with Evans joining the club.

“We’re delighted to be welcoming a player of Rob’s calibre to Dragons and excited about the impact he can make with us.

“Rob is highly driven and motivated to help us move forward as a squad. He also still has big international ambitions with Wales that he wants to achieve as a Dragon.”
