Date published: April 12 2016

Dragons have completed the signing of Wales international prop Craig Mitchell ahead of next season, according to head coach Kingsley Jones.

Jones, who was speaking at a supporters meeting at Rodney Parade, revealed that the tighthead would be joining them from Cardiff Blues.

Mitchell is 29-years-old and has been capped fifteen times by his country, his last appearance coming against Japan in Tokyo in June 2013.

"He's put his hand up, he still wants to play for Wales and I think it's a great signing for us," Jones is quoted as saying by PRO12 Rugby.

"We all know tighthead is a critical position and that he will bring a lot."
