Dragons Rugby have today confirmed that nine members of the senior squad will leave the club following the conclusion of the 2018/19 season.
Jason Tovey – who earlier this season became the first player to score 1,000 points for Dragons – leaves after completing a successful third spell at the region.
Former captain Rynard Landman – who made 115 appearances after moving to Rodney Parade in 2014 – and fellow South African Zane Kirchner will also move on at the end of the campaign.
Joining the trio will be fly half Gavin Henson, centre Jarryd Sage, prop Dan Suter and wing George Gasson.
With their departures already confirmed, Hallam Amos – who has made 115 appearances since his debut a decade ago – will join Cardiff Blues, while scrum half Rhodri Davies departs for Cornish Pirates.
All nine players are to be recognised at the region’s end of season awards alongside Gerard Ellis, Calvin Wellington and James Thomas who left during the season.
Head Coach Ceri Jones, said: “We thank all the players for their hard work and professionalism during their time at Dragons. They leave with our best wishes and we wish them well in their future endeavours.”
