Newport Gwent Dragons has announced that Ross Wardle has been released from his contract and will begin his career as a pharmacist.
The 25-year-old joined the Dragons in 2012 after impressing Regional coaches during his time with Principality Premiership club Bedwas. He went on to make 50 appearances for the Dragons.
Wardle sustained a knee injury during the Singha Premiership Sevens tournament in Cardiff during the summer of 2016 which required surgery. Fortunately, as with several other Dragons players, he has managed to complete a degree alongside his rugby commitments. Dragons are delighted that, whilst his rugby career may have been put on hold, the opportunity to pursue interests outside of rugby has resulted in him being recruited into a managerial position by Lloyd's Pharmacy.
He will continue with this rehab alongside the Dragons medical team.
