Dragons have bolstered their front row stocks with the signature of Samoan, Aki Seiuli.
The 28 year-old steps in to replace Brok Harris who is set to return to South Africa.
"It's awesome to be joining the Dragons," he said. "The team has definitely improved the last few seasons and I'm really happy to be a part of it now.
"I've spoken to Dean about the plans here and he was very straight about where we are going and the journey we are on. It's good to get started.
"It's been great to get into camp this week and get to know the boys and I'm now looking forward to running out at Rodney Parade and seeing the fans back."
