The Dragons have confirmed that they will not be offering new deals to eight members of their squad.

Former Wales Sevens duo Tom Riley and Martyn Thomas and ex England Under-20s skipper Hugo Ellis are among those to have been told they are surplus to requirements.

Rhys Buckley, Gethin Robinson, Royce Cadman, Rhys Jenkins and James Leadbeater will also leave Rodney Parade at the end of the current campaign.

Director of rugby Robert Beale said: "The decision not to offer contract extensions to these players has been reached after discussions with head coach Darren Edwards and his coaching team, based on future business plans and the direction the management team and squad will follow.

"The players concerned have been formally thanked for their efforts whilst representing the regional team."
