Former England International Set To Be Appointed Head Coach Of Dragons

New boss.

Former England international Dean Ryan is set to be appointed as the new head coach of the Dragons according to a report by WalesOnline.

A number of people have been linked with the role in recent weeks, including the likes of Graham Rowntree and even Rob Howley as the Welsh side look to bounce back from yet another disappointing season.

Ryan has coached at Bristol, Gloucester and Worcester, and also had a spell as assistant to the Scottish national team. He has been the RFU’s head of international player development since 2016, following three years as director of rugby at Worcester Warriors.

Former Wales prop Ceri Jones has been in interim charge since Bernard Jackman’s departure, and he is expected to stay on as part of the new coaching ticket.
