The Dragons have announced that back-row Lewis Evans and hooker Hugh Gustafson have signed deal extensions at the Welsh region.
The duo will stay until the end of 2014/15.
Newport-born Evans has come through the Dragons Academy representing various age groups throughout this time and played for Welsh Premiership sides Ebbw Vale and Newport before the Dragons. Since then he has proved to be a crucial member of the Dragons squad. He's also impressed at international level representing Wales at age group levels and the Sevens side.
Gustafson joined the region in 2007/08 from the Scarlets after captaining the Wales U20's in the 2007 Six Nations. The West Walian was an immediate success at Rodney Parade, possessing strength in the tight and mobility in the loose and played 21 times for the region in his first season. Gustafson took on the challenge of changing positions from prop to hooker during the early 2012/2013 season and has made great strides towards this conversion.
Both Dragons players have strong rugby knowledge and are involved in coaching as they attempt to transfer this knowledge to the youth of the region.
"We are delighted to announce that Lewis Evans and Hugh Gustafson, two players committed to the Dragons Region have extended their current contacts with us. I'm sure both players will play a big part in the Dragons future going forward," said director of rugby Robert Beale.
