THE Dragons' record points scorer will be playing in Division Two East next season after signing for Ynysddu.

Fly-half Jason Tovey will be player/coach at the club after retiring from professional rugby.

The 33-year-old from Cwmcarn spent last season as a fringe figure at Cardiff after a second spell at the Arms Park.

Tovey had three stints at the Dragons and is comfortably the region's record points scorer on 1,009, well clear of second-placed Ceri Sweeney's 570.

The playmaker, who also played for Edinburgh, made his debut in 2008 and his final act was the match-winning conversion in the 2019 Judgement Day win over the Scarlets at Principality Stadium.

Tovey played for Bedwas and Newport while coming through the Dragons academy and earned his third and final spell at Rodney Parade after joining from Cross Keys to solve a fly-half crisis.

Now the left-footer will be featuring for his local club, who topped Two East in the Covid-affected 2021/22 season with eight wins from eight.

"Having spent the last year or so helping out with coaching and recently announcing his retirement from professional rugby. Tovey has opted to double up and act as player/coach at Ynysddu," read a club statement.

"Jason will bring a high level of experience and knowledge to our back line and we as a club are very excited to see what could happen in the coming season."
