Dai Flanagan is to join Dragons as head coach

Scarlets can confirm that backs coach Dai Flanagan is to join the Dragons as the club’s new head coach.

Flanagan joins the Men of Gwent ahead of the 2022-2023 season having been part of the coaching set-up at the Scarlets since 2014.

Dai Flanagan said: “I’ve been involved with Scarlets for eight years in a number of roles, including heading up the coaching when the opportunity arose, so I leave with memories of an unbelievable rugby journey with them.

“I’d like to thank Dwayne and the Scarlets for allowing me to take up this opportunity and also all the staff and players, I can’t thank them enough. From the likes of Rhys Priestland and Regan King when I first joined, to Scott Williams and Steff Hughes, who are so knowledgeable about the game. I’ve had great support and wish them all well.

“I’m excited to be joining Dragons and look forward to putting my mark on the team and how we play. I’m keen to build on the foundations put in place and enhance performances.

“I started my career at Newport High School, working with the likes of Leon Brown and Joe Davies, so it’s a great prospect to be coming back to work with those boys again and help make them better.”

Scarlets will confirm their coaching team for the 2022-23 season in the coming weeks.
