Dragons miss out on target Andy Goode
NEWPORT Gwent Dragons target Andy Goode has chosen to join Aviva Premiership side Wasps next season over a move to Rodney Parade.
The 32-year-old ex-England fly-half is expected to officially announce his departure for Dai Young’s side from Worcester Warriors on Tuesday.
A hugely experienced player, who had also played for Leicester and Brive, he was not offered a new contract by the Warriors after spending the last three seasons at Sixways.
Goode had won 17 caps for his country and was being sought by the Dragons to fill a problem position for the region since Jason Tovey left to join Cardiff Blues last year.
No 10 Steffan Jones has demonstrated glimpses of his potential in recent weeks but Lewis Robling struggled to make the position his own this season as did Dan Evans after he switched from full back.
