    Dragons now have some great strength in depth in the backrow. When everyones fit, they will have Gavin Thomas, Robin Sowden-Taylor, Dan Lydiate, Joe Bearman, Toby Faletau and Lewis Evans. Probably missing one or two aswell.

    So overall, good signing, which will give them vital backup if injury occurs/Gavin Thomas needs resting etc.

    I think he will push Gavin Thomas for a starting spot.

    To be honest, I think Joe Bearman is done, as terrible as it is to say it.
    He has played only 50 minutes of rugby this year, before getting injured again.
    RST and Scott Morgan should provide good cover and experience until Faletau is ready for starting.

    Let see how the new signings will work out for them.

    You may be right mate about Joe Bearman but like you said I really hope not! Hes a class act when fully fit. I'm still hoping he has an injury free season and plays really well and fights his way into contention for Wales selection. Without a doubt I think he would've played for Wales by now if not for injury. As for the signing of Sowden-Taylor I'm glad we snapped him up and I hope he rediscovers the form that made people talk about him as the natural replacement to Martin Williams

    Think your right. Dragons have a tendancy to get the best out of players, so we'll probably see much more from RST than we did at the Blues in recent years.
