Promising utility three-quarter Jason Tovey has returned to Newport-Gwent Dragons after just one season with Cardiff Blues.

The 24-year-old, who has played at fly-half, full-back and even centre, came through the Academy with the Dragons and made his senior debut against Aberavon in 2006, becoming the club's youngest ever Premier League player.

On Tovey's return to Rodney Parade, Dragons director of rugby Lyn Jones said: "I am delighted to welcome Jason back to Gwent. He really impressed me when I had my first coaching stint here.

"Things haven't really worked out for him at the Blues but we are looking forward to his return to Gwent and helping him to achieve his full potential."

Tovey added: "I'm really delighted to be rejoining a rejuvenated Gwent squad, last season proved a difficult one for me personally, but I'm delighted to be working with Lyn again, and looking forward to improving my game and helping Gwent get back up the league where they belong.

"I've missed playing in front of the Rodney Parade supporters and hope I can add to an exciting and optimistic few years back in Newport"
