Wales scrum-half Rhodri Williams has committed his future to the Dragons after signing a new long-term contract.


Williams, 26, has made 35 appearances for the Welsh side since joining from Bristol Bears in 2018.

Dragons Director of Rugby, Dean Ryan, said: “It is fantastic news that Rhodri has become the latest player to sign new terms with us.

“He is an important player in our group and has embraced captaining the team. We are trying to build momentum here at the Dragons, which the players can see.

“It is important that they feel that as a region we are supporting them to achieve their ambitions.”

Having represented Wales in the 2013 U20 Six Nations, Williams made his full senior Wales debut against Tonga in November 2013, but he hasn’t been capped since March 2014.


Williams represented the Barbarians against England at Twickenham in May 2018 and again in the summer of 2019, scoring a second half try as a replacement.

“I’m excited to commit my future to Dragons and looking forward to what we can achieve in the coming seasons,” Williams said.

“I feel we’ve made big strides in the last six months and I’m confident we will keep building and moving forward as a group. Nights like the one against Scarlets make it an absolute pleasure to be part of this region, with the fantastic support of our fans spurring us on.


“I feel really settled here and I’m loving my time at Dragons.

“You get challenged every day in this environment to improve yourself and better yourself and that is exactly what we need to bring success to the region.”

His signing follows back row Ollie Griffiths – another Wales international – agreeing a contract extension.
