Jenkins to leave Dragons

Newport Gwent Dragons have announced that Mike Jenkins is to step down as chief executive of the region.

Jenkins joined the Dragons in 2011 to oversee the building and opening of the new Bisley Stand at Rodney Parade.

"My remit when I joined the Dragons as chief executive was short term and specific - to drive through the re-development of Rodney Parade," Jenkins said.

The first phase of the Rodney Parade regeneration was completed in September with the new Bisley Stand opened for the RaboDirect Pro 12 game aganist Aironi.

The date for Jenkins' departure will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
