Newport Gwent Dragons signs Nick Macleod
Macleod is all set to go the Gwent region after he made more than hundred and fifty appearances for Sale Sharks and scoring over seven-hundred points. Last Wednesday, Newport Gwent Dragons triggered a stir when they released Jason Tovey controversially; and after 6 days they stated that they are signing journeyman Nick Macleod.
Lyn Jones, Dragons director of rugby, told that they really feel that their future at fly-half lies with Angus O’Brien, Arwel Robson and Dorian Jones, and all would be fighting for game time between now and the end of the season.
Now Dragons, who have lost fourteen of their eighteen matches in Guinness Pro12 and have the same victory record as Italian team Zebre, have brought in player veteran Macleod back to Wales. Jones voiced his new signing stating that they have made a strong and conscious decision to back their youngsters as well as their development, and signing someone of Nick’s caliber recognizes this as he would act as a catalyst for these rugby players.
Nick would be mentoring the players like Angus O’Brien, Arwel and Dorian while also playing his part in the squad moving forward next season. Dragons’ supporters would be amazed at the decision to sign Macleod, who spent much of his days at the Aviva Premiership team Sale Sharks playing at full-back.
