With the downsizing of the Premiership to 12 teams came the relegation of Cross Keys, Bedwas and Bargoed from the Gwent area. This has led to an increased number of players being made available to both Newport and Ebbw Vale for the new season by The Dragons.
The Newport allocation is:
Arwel Robson, Adam Warren, Huw Taylor, Rhys Lawrence, Taine Basham, Connor Edwards, Josh Reynolds, Ellis Shipp, Lennon Greggains, James McCarthy, Brodie Coughlin, Ben Carter, Dafydd Buckland, Deon Smith & Tom Hoppe.
In addition Newport contracted players Garin Price, Jack Wright & David Richards are training with the Dragons.
The majority of these players are currently representing The Dragons in the Celtic Cup, whilst Newport fans will send their best wishes to Lennon Greggains as he recovers from a nasty knee injury that will keep him out of rugby for some months.
Newport RFC would like to thank The Dragons for their assistance in this arrangement.
