Griffiths extends contract with Dragons

Centre Tom Griffiths has agreed new terms to extend his stay at Dragons.

Griffiths, 24, joined the region from Saracens in the summer of 2019 and made six appearances during his debut season at Dragons.

The Gloucester-born back – who is Welsh qualified – is currently in rehabilitation after surgery on a knee injury.

Dean Ryan, Director of Dragons Rugby, said: "Tom showed promise during a campaign that was sadly ended prematurely by injury.

“We are now fully supporting Tom throughout his recovery as he is a player we believe will develop in our environment in the long-term.

“We all wish him well with his rehabilitation and look forward to his return in the future.”

Griffiths said: “I really enjoyed my first season with Dragons and the progress we made as a group so I’m pleased to sign the extension.

“It is frustrating to be ruled out with injury, but my rehabilitation is going well and I’m determined to make a successful return and repay the faith that has been put in me by the coaching team.”
