FORMER Scotland stand-off Gordon Ross has been named the new backs coach at Dragons, joining the Welsh side with immediate effect as the team prepares for a return to PRO14 action on 22nd August.
The 42-year-old, who played 25 games for Scotland between 2001 and 2006, is joining from Worcester Warriors, where he was an academy coach, and will link up with Mefin Davies, Luke Narraway, fellow Scot Simon Cross, Barry Maddocks and Alan Kingsley in a new-look coaching team at Rodney Parade.
“We’re pleased to confirm Gordon’s appointment as we continue to invest in our coaching set-up and environment,” said Dragons Director of Rugby Dean Ryan.
“I worked closely with Gordon during our time together at Worcester and know he is a talented and ambitious coach who is excited about the opportunity to work in Wales.
“Gordon is ready to take on this important senior role with us and make a real impact on our backs as we look to move forward and develop as a squad.”
