Dragons complete deals for duo

Newport Gwent Dragons have completed deals for Scarlets centre Adam Warren and London Welsh wing Nick Scott.

Warren made his Scarlets debut in 2011 and featured in Wales' non-cap international against the Barbarians in 2012.

Former England Under-19 cap Scott reunites with Dragons boss Lyn Jones, who coached the 25-year-old at London Welsh.

"We have made two excellent additions to our squad for the coming season, both have much more to offer after excellent having starts to their careers," said Dragons rugby director Jones.

"Nick was excellent for London Welsh when we last worked together and Adam Warren is very keen to add to his international appearance and a fresh team will offer a focus for him."

Warren admitted he was ready for a change of scene on leaving the Scarlets.

"I'm excited for a new challenge," said the 24-year-old.

"The Dragons are a developing side with a lot of young players and I am looking forward to training and playing with the boys, whilst adding my experience to the back line. "

Scott revealed the chance to link up with Jones again cemented his decision to join the Dragons.

"As an outsider looking in, it is clearly a club making progress, with a batch of talented young players," said Scott.

"I'm relishing the prospect of working with and continuing my development under Lyn Jones again.

"I enjoyed my time with Lyn at London Welsh and I'm looking forward to working in the environment he creates again."
