Bertranou signs new contract


Argentina international scrum half Gonzalo Bertranou has agreed a new contract to remain with Dragons.

Bertranou – who has made 23 appearances for the Men of Gwent –joined the region from Jaguares in 2021 and will now extend his stay with the region.

The 28-year-old - who has won 36 caps for his country - has put pen to paper alongside fellow scrum halves Lewis Jones and Rhodri Williams to commit his future.

Dean Ryan, Director of Dragons Rugby, said: “We are delighted that Gonzalo will extend his stay with us.

“He enables us to play a fast game and has clearly enjoyed being a Dragon over the last two seasons and testing himself in a new competition and environment.

“Gonzalo has big ambitions over the next 12 months, for both Dragons and his country, and we will look forward to seeing the impact he can make with both.”

Bertranou - who appeared for the Pumas in the 2019 Rugby World Cup - has impressed with his quick style of play as the squad continues to take shape ahead of the 2022/23 season.

“I am really happy to re-sign,” said Bertranou. “There is a point in the life as professional player when you must decide on your future, what direction you take, and now it is for me to be a Dragon.

“I want to achieve with this squad and leave a legacy at a club that is not in my home country.

“There are very good people at the club who have made me feel welcome from the first day I arrived here. To stay here is right.

“I have always had the support I need to train and prepare to be the best I can be for Dragons and Argentina.

“This decision is about achieving something great. People talk about results this season, but this is about the future, leaving a legacy and being a part of change in another part of the world to my home.”

This decision is about achieving something great... this is about the future, leaving a legacy and being a part of change in another part of the world to my home...
