on 04/09/2013

The Dragons have bolstered their squad with four new players ahead of next season with the most notable recruit Italy fly-half Kris Burton.

Burton, who has 21 caps for the Azzurri, will be joined at Rodney Parade next term by Cheetahs second-row Martin Muller, No.8 Netani Talei and Argentinian prop Francisco Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro.

Dragons director of rugby Robert Beale was delighted with his new recruits saying: "With the business now on a sound footing and an agreed strategy in place, the arrival of these players plus the recent acquisition of Ritchie Rees from Edinburgh will add considerable strength to our playing squad for next season. We are still very active in the recruitment market as we look to meet the requirements of our agreed recruitment strategy for season 2013/14 and beyond."
