Gavin Henson is heading back to Wales having signed a two-year deal with the Dragons.
Henson has been with Bristol for the past two seasons, but has now decided to move to Rodney Parade. It will be his third Welsh region, following spells with the Ospreys and Cardiff Blues.
“I have really enjoyed my time here at Bristol but when the opportunity came along to join the Dragons and return to Wales, I couldn’t say no,” the 35 year-old Henson said.
“I still have loads to offer and I know what Kingsley wants from me.
“I’m especially looking forward to pitting myself against the current Welsh players and hopefully becoming a catalyst and mentor for the tremendous talent that is in the Dragons squad.”
Head coach Kingsley Jones added:
“This is a hugely important signing and exactly what we need to complement our existing squad.
“I am delighted that Gavin sees the potential within the Region and that he is excited about the prospect of assisting this group of backs with their development.
“Having worked with Gavin previously I am fully aware that he will bring critical experience on the field and inside the training environment.”
Henson will be joined at the Dragons by Zane Kirchner next season who is set to leave Leinster at the his of his current contract.
