Burton leaves Newport

Newport Gwent Dragons have confirmed the departure of Italy international fly-half Kris Burton from Rodney Parade.

Brisbane-born Burton, who qualified to play for Italy through his mother, is heading back to Australia.

The 33-year-old won 21 caps for the Azzurri. He made 15 Dragons appearances during his one-season stint in Wales.

Dragons chief executive Gareth Davies said: " Kris is very professional both on and off the field. He handled himself well during the season he was with us.

"We wish Kris and his family the very best with their move back to Australia."
