UP-AND-COMING Dragons wingers Ewan Rosser and Oli Andrew have signed new two-year contracts after breaking into the first team.

The pair have earned fresh terms at Rodney Parade after making their professional debuts for the club this season.

Rosser, younger brother of fellow wing Jared, made his first senior appearance at Munster in November and has made 11 appearances.

The 23-year-old from Abersychan, who played for Wales at the Sevens World Cup in 2022, suffered a serious ankle injury season but has recovered to put the heat on the seniors.

“Ewan has come on leaps and bounds this season and been asked to play in several positions for us,” said head coach Dai Flanagan, who fielded the speedster at full-back at Ulster.

“He showed his determination to come back from a horrific injury and it is testament to his professionalism that he has returned in the manner he has.

“Ewan has many of the traits of his older brother in that he is hard-working and dedicated, and we’re confident he will take this opportunity to continue the upward trajectory with his career.”

Andrew has earned a new contract by showing his potential with Newport RFC in the Premiership, with his exploits earning the 20-year-old a United Rugby Championship debut at Glasgow in February.

The former Wales Under-20s speedster, who is currently sidelined by a hamstring strain, has scored 21 tries in 28 games for the Black and Ambers and will try to push on for the Dragons.

Flanagan said: “Oli has been unfortunate with injuries in recent times that have restricted his opportunities, but he is player who has huge potential.

“Oli was an outstanding age grade player who really produced some excellent performances for Wales Under-20s.

“He has an eye for the try line and is exceptionally quick, matching the likes of Rio Dyer and Ashton Hewitt.

“Oli’s target now is to get a consistent run of games under his belt and show he can develop into the player we know he can become over the duration of his new contract.”

Ewan Rosser and Andrew will put the pressure on Jared Rosser and Wales international Rio Dyer next season, with Ashton Hewitt on the comeback trail from ruptured knee ligaments.

Rapid full-back/wing David Richards, who has been plagued by injuries recently, and Corey Baldwin are out of contract this summer while young centre Joe Westwood has featured on the flank this season.

The Dragons also have a fresh batch of youngsters stepping up to the senior academy after providing the back three for Wales Under-20s in Huw Anderson, who made his pro debut at Ulster, Harry Rees-Weldon and Walker Price.

Ewan Rosser and Andrew are the latest promising prospects to sign new terms after deals with centres Harri Ackerman and Joe Westwood plus scrum-halves Che Hope and Morgan Lloyd, with two more announcements set for Friday.
