Sam has signed! Dragons playmaker Sam Davies has committed his future to the region by signing a new long-term deal with the Men of Gwent.
The Wales international fly half – who has clocked up an impressive 217 points in 27 games for Dragons – has put pen to paper on new terms to continue his successful spell at Rodney Parade.
Dean Ryan, Director of Dragons Rugby, said: “It’s key that our senior players want to remain here, want to compete and get better with the Dragons.
“Sam is the start of that group committing which is fantastic news.
“He took a really bold step to come here and drive us forward and that impressed me enormously.
“Sam has been central to our development and I can’t speak highly enough of him.”
A former IRB Junior Player of the Year, Davies has been an instrumental figure for Dragons since his arrival in the summer of 2019.
The 27-year-old is already ninth in the region’s all-time point scoring charts.
The playmaker currently has eight caps for Wales, scoring 24 points since he made his full debut in the 2017 clash with Tonga in Auckland.
Davies said: “I’m pleased to commit my future to Dragons and excited about the future at the region.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here, being part of a squad that is moving forward and determined to learn and get better at every opportunity.
“Clearly this season has been an unusual one for all of us and we’ve definitely missed the fans, who play a huge part for us.
“Now I’ve agreed new terms I’m looking forward to the day we can welcome fans back to Rodney Parade and get back out playing in front of them.”
