“We’re disappointed to see Cory depart and everyone at Dragons Rugby wishes Cory well for the future," he said in a statement released by Dragons.

Meanwhile, Hill is set to return to Cardiff Blues next season and Dragons have asked "the relevant bodies to look into the circumstances around the move".
