Nott, 26, joins the Men of Gwent from English Premiership side London Irish, where he has made 61 appearances for the Exiles. Born in Bodelwyddan, Nott returns to the land of his birth and will add to the back five options available to boss Dean Ryan.
Nott joins Rhodri Jones, Bradley Roberts, Sean Lonsdale, JJ Hanrahan and Max Clark in committing their futures to the Dragons from next season. “We’re pleased to sign George and bring another Welsh qualified player back home,” said Dragons director of rugby Dean Ryan.
“George has made a positive contribution at Sale Sharks and London Irish and is a great fit for the squad we are developing. His return to Wales ensures he’s in the eye of the national selectors and he is determined to make a big impression with the Dragons.”
A former England Under-20 international – standing at 6ft 6in and over 18 stone – Nott will add both size and physicality to the pack at Rodney Parade and he is looking forward to the new challenge. “I’m really excited to come back to Wales and join up with the Dragons,” said Nott.
“The Dragons are building a great squad and I’m proud to be a part of it. It’s a new challenge for me and I’m eager to get stuck in and contribute.
“That being said, I’ve loved my time at London Irish and I’m fully committed to helping the team win some silverware before my departure.”
