Dragons duo re-sign

Date published: February 19 2015

The Dragons have announced that flankers Lewis Evans and Nic Cudd have committed their futures to the Welsh region for another two seasons.

Evans came up through the Dragons age grades and went on to play for Welsh Premiership sides Ebbw Vale and Newport RFC, before making his debut for the Men of Gwent in 2006 against the Scarlets. He also has international caps from his time with Wales Sevens and the U20s.

"I am just incredibly happy to have sorted this out so that I can focus solely on my rugby. I'm a local boy who enjoys playing for my home region and now I can do that for another two years," he said.

"We are working hard here to build something long term; we have a lot of talented youngsters coming through and you get the feeling that something special is coming, so I am pleased that I can continue playing my part here."

Camarthen born Cudd has also put pen to paper this week on a new deal with the Dragons.

The 26-year-old flanker has made a total of 60 appearances for the Welsh region and has been with the region since 2012 after moving from Llanelli. Cudd has earned international caps with Wales U16s, U18s, U19s and Wales U20s.

"I am excited to be extending my contract with the Dragons," he said.

"I feel that my game has really advanced in the last two years and I look forward to continuing to push myself to be the best.

"We all feel that there is something special around the corner for us and I am proud to be a part of it."
