Wales lock Will Rowlands is excited now his Dragons journey has begun.

The 29-year-old – who has 10 Test caps for Wayne Pivac’s men – has swapped Gallagher Premiership side Wasps for Rodney Parade this summer.

Rowlands joined up with his new Dragons team-mates last week.

“I’m feeling good. It’s great to be here because it’s been a long time coming. It’s nice to get my feet on the ground and get going,” he said.

“I know a few of the faces around the place – not just the players, but the coaches too so it’s been an easy transition.

“I am looking forward to getting fully stuck into it and hear some new voices, have new coaches, and experience a change of environment.”

Rowlands made his Wales debut against France in the 2020 Guinness Six Nations before the Covid-19 pandemic stopped rugby in its tracks.

He has nonetheless been a key figure for Wales head coach Pivac since then and made two appearances as his team won the 2021 Guinness Six Nations Grand Slam.

Rowlands started all three of Wales’ summer Tests – the first of which came against Canada before two back-to-back meetings with Argentina.

He scored a try in each of those first two matches as he crossed the whitewash for his country for the first time.

Rowlands is now in pre-season training with the Dragons ahead of the start of the new United Rugby Championship next month.

“It’s nice to have a different focus after the last seven years being very focused on the Premiership and to get stuck into a new league,” he said.

“It’s a new league for everyone so I’m really looking forward to it.

“I had a few conversations with Dean Ryan – some of them were quite a long time ago now – about the direction of travel here and what they are trying to do.

“Everything aligned with me.”
