Newport Gwent Dragons new arrival Kristopher Burton has underlined his ambitions for the club ahead of the new season.
The former Italy international, who retired from Test rugby with 21 caps following the Six Nations earlier this year, is set for his first stint playing in the UK after several years with Treviso.
Recruited to compete alongside Jason Tovey and Steffan Jones for the number ten shirt at Rodney Parade, Burton is renowned for his tactical kicking but is looking to open up in attack with the Dragons under the coaching of Lyn Jones.
"I like to organise things but I also enjoy having ball in hand and I probably haven't had that at Treviso for the last year or so," said Burton to the South Wales Argus.
"I haven't had as much to do in attack because of the patterns and the way I've been asked to play.
"I am sure there will be plenty of chances to have a go this season, we want to have an attacking game plan and that's the only way you win games.
"Of course kicks make a big difference but I'm not just going to focus on that and as a team we want to play expansive rugby.
"I've played against Tov and Steffan so know they are quality players. There's great competition and I'm ready for the challenge.
"I think we are different types of players as well, so I suppose there are options for the coaches.
"It's all a new experience for me and I can't wait for the season - change is always good.
"I've always been interested in playing in the UK, the chance has finally come and I want to make the most of it."
