The 26-year-old back row forward, who steered Wales to World Cup glory in Dubai, joins the Dragons from Neath having last Saturday led the Blacks to back to back SWALEC Cup wins with victory over Llanelli at the Millennium Stadium.

Beach was also instrumental in guiding Neath to a Principality Premiership and Konica Minolta Cup double in 2007/08 - the fourth consecutive season the Blacks had claimed the Premiership title. He was a try scorer in their 28-22 cup final win over former club Pontypridd in Cardiff.
