Jack Wright, the of the son the current President of MRFC, David Wright, and former mini/junior player, has now signed for the Welsh side, after deciding to follow his Welsh family roots (much to pleasure of his dad) and join Newport RFC. He has just completed his Degree in Sports Science at Cardiff University and will now become a permanent player at Newport, but will continue to train with the Dragons until the end of October before moving over.

Head Coach, Ty Morris commented, ‘Jack showed in his two appearances for Newport at the end of the season why we needed him on board for the new campaign. His directness and strong running were superb giving us gain line advantage time and time again. He also showed some excellent glimpses of soft hands to compliment his power game.’

It is always great to see our youngsters moving on and succeeding, but not forgetting where they honed their skills. We shall be following his progress with great interest and we wish him all the very best for a very successful and injury free season.
