Powerful centre Jack Dixon has committed his long-term future to his home region after signing a new contract at Dragons.
Dixon, who came through the Dragons Academy and has to date played 138 games for the Men of Gwent, has put pen to paper on new terms to remain at Rodney Parade.
The 26-year-old joins the likes of Elliot Dee, Leon Brown, Aaron Wainwright, Ollie Griffiths, Harrison Keddie, Ashton Hewitt and Joe Davies in signing a contract extension.
Dean Ryan, Director of Dragons Rugby, said: “We’re really pleased Jack has become the latest of our homegrown players to commit his future.
“Jack has become a senior figure for us who is proud to be a Dragon and totally committed to playing his part in helping us achieve our long-term aspirations.”
Renowned for his powerful ball carrying and explosive defence, Dixon has featured in 14 games in all competitions this season.
The Newbridge-born centre currently stands 14th in the all-time appearance charts for Dragons.
“I’m delighted to re-sign at my home region and excited about what is ahead of us as a squad,” said Dixon.
“As a local boy, who always supported Dragons when I was growing up, I’m determined to play a big role in helping the team continue to move forward.
“We have a tight group of boys here, many of which I have grown-up with, who all enjoy playing together and pushing each other to get better.
“I’m relishing that competition and the determination we all share to really kick on in the coming years at Dragons.”
