Wales Sevens World Cup-winner Aled Brew, Wayne Evans, Martyn Thomas and Tom Riley have all agreed new contracts with the Welsh region.

Winger Brew, who joined Dragons from Cardiff Blues last season, is keen to continue his contribution to the progression of the club.

"I've really enjoyed my time at Rodney Parade since last season," said Brew.

"I feel this region and this team are going somewhere. I've developed as a player here and the team has a bright future."


Scrum-half Evans, who moved to the outfit in 2007, echoed Brew's ambition to push the Dragons forward.

"I'm really pleased to be staying on at the Dragons," said Evans.

"I've been very happy here and I feel that we are moving forward.

"I know we had a few tough results over the Christmas period but we know what we need to do and are ready to put in the hard work to get back on track for the rest of the season."

Dragons rugby manager Robert Beale revealed he is thrilled to have agreed the new deals with the foursome.

"We are delighted to have retained the services of all four players," said Beale.

"It forms a key part of our ongoing development policy and these four players have been provided with opportunities and have readily made the most of them."
