The Dragons have completed the signing of veteran lock Ian Gough from London Irish ahead of next season.
Gough, 37, will bring a wealth of experience to the Dragons and he is relishing the chance to link up with the region.
"I am very excited to be returning to Welsh rugby," Gough said. "My rugby career was first formed at Rodney Parade, so it's fantastic to have the opportunity to play back there once again.
"Recent reports on Welsh regional rugby have been very negative but I see the Dragons as being one of the positives to come out of it. The squad have come so far under Lyn Jones' guidance this season - it's great to see that sleeping giant has finally been awoken."
The Dragons have also signed tight-head David Young.
