Young Dragons scrum half Jonathan Evans has extended his contract with the region until the end of the 2014/15 season.
The Bargoed product started his career playing outside half at Bargoed youth; Jonathan moved to scrum half when coming through the Dragons Academy and also played for Pontypool RFC. He made 8 appearances in his first full season at the region, including 3 starts.
Since then Jonathan has played more and more fixtures each season. This season he has been involved in 18 fixtures starting in 12 of these.
"With injuries to both Joe Bedford and Wayne Evans at the start of the season, it gave me the opportunity to get the ball rolling early. Since then I have been given further opportunities to start and have grabbed them with both hands," said Evans.
"I enjoy playing for the Dragons and thank them for giving us young players the opportunity to perform on a weekly basis.
"I look forward to another two seasons here at the Gwent based region."
