“During the last two years we have had different visits from HH Law, they have tried out the sport and the relationship has been deepened and cemented.
“HH Law have provided all of our on-field vests and off field kit so we look like a real team. With the Dragons RFC and HH Law logo we know that when we wear the kit and play our sport we represent all of our partners and want to do them proud.
“We have already seen the benefits of having HH Law as our sponsor and it was great to see Dragons Rugby and HH Law providing a space for disabled people not only to play rugby but also to go and watch it at Rodney Parade.
“We want to thank HH Law for their sponsorship, Dragons RFC for their support. We want to thank Torfaen Leisure Trust for their support and for looking after us so well. We also want to thank WRU and Chris Garrett for starting it all off.
