Post Huw Taylor to the Dragons
The Dragons have signed England U20 World Cup winner Huw Taylor from Worcester, he is Welsh qualified through a grandparent but has moved to try to break into the Welsh set up. Hasn't played much at Worcester so no idea if he will make an immediate impact at the Drags but looks a solid prospect.
Hopefully this signals the start of rafts of the Welsh boys at Premiership club moving back to regions, players such as Matt Protheroe, Lewis Ludlow, George Nott etc

Post Re: Huw Taylor to the Dragons
Neither Taylor nor most of those other players have ever played for a region and some (like Taylor) have never lived in Wales, so they're not really moving "back". Taylor in particular would probably be described as a "poach" in most countries. Which isn't to say the signing isn't a good one nor to be welcomed, though he does seem pretty unproven - 24 apps for Worcester but only one of them in the Prem, so he's obviously not troubling their first team, so I'm not sure to what extent he is an improvment on the Dragons' existing forwards. He's only 21 and the Dragons don't really need more young prospects. Evidently he's decided to try his luck in Wales. Good luck to him.

A punt by the dragons.

He does seem a big old unit which the dragons backrow doesn’t have.
