Post New signings for Dragons?
Hearing rumours on Twitter that Gav Henson and Ian Evans have agreed terms.

Does this mean St Gav will have played for all four regions?

If they stay fit both could be really good signing. But that is a King Kong sized if

They'll have 2 experienced backs next season now, Gav and Kirchner. That might really help the young backs there.

Wouldn't get to excited.
Henson has only played 5 games this season and Ianto played just twice.

,

Ianto is pretty much done as a player I think. Henson still has a lot to offer to the Dragons, his MoM performance to win the Bristol/Bath derby was mighty impressive, especially after such a long injury layoff. His experience brought shape and an edge that the Bristol backs usually lack. Dragons could do with similar guidance.

Henson (and Ian Evans, if and when that's confirmed) could be excellent signings for the Dregs, but then they've tried this before a few years ago when they signed Andy Powell, Ian Gough and Lee Byrne - all great players in their day but they had almost no impact at all at Rodney Parade. It's a bit of a gamble as I imagine they won't be coming too cheap.

The secret is to keep the players motivated.

Last chance of money on the way out.....

When was the last time either of these two players justified their annual salary through number or quality of performances?

Lottery ticket signings.
