RaboDirect PRO12 side Newport Gwent Dragons have appointed Dean Ryan as a rugby consultant.

The former England back row is hugely experienced, having played in the Aviva Premiership with Saracens, Wasps, Newcastle and Bristol.

His coaching career saw him hold the reins at Gloucester for five years before moving into consultancy alongside his media career as a Sky Sports analyst.

Dragons chief executive Chris Brown said "We have a talented coaching team at Rodney Parade and the addition of Dean's expertise will only add to the quality we are looking to build on here at the Dragons.

"His experience of top-flight rugby puts him in a position to offer support to our coaches and management. We are delighted to have him on board."
