Dragons have confirmed that fly-half Angus O'Brien has signed a new multi-year contract with the Welsh province.

O'Brien is a product of Dragons Academy and initially made his senior debut in 2014 before moving to Scarlets in 2018. He returned back to Rodney Parade in 2022 but missed most of the 2023/24 season due to a injury.

He has overall made 89 appearances for Dragons racking up 352 points - which keeps him at the fifth position in the list of most points scored for the province.

“I’m really pleased to agree new terms with my home club," he told the club's official website.

“It’s been a tough and frustrating season for me personally due to injury, but now I’ve re-signed with Dragons I can look forward to more games and hitting a century of games soon.

“My focus is my recovery and I can’t wait to get back out on the field in front of our fans because I am massively excited about the next few years ahead of us.”

Dragons head coach Dai Flanagan is pleased with O'Brien remaining committed to the club.

“We’re all really pleased that Angus has signed a new contract as he is a very important figure within our squad.

“Angus has impressed in his second spell with the club, deservedly winning the player of the season award last term.

“We’ve missed both his ability and presence on the field this season, as he has been unlucky with the injuries he’s picked up.

“However, Angus is determined to get back out on the field before the end of the current campaign and continue to show he is a leader for Dragons.”
