Roberts, who featured for Wales in the international with Georgia earlier this month, flew out to join the ‘Men of Gwent’ on Monday. Dragons have now travelled south as they prepare to face reigning champions the Stormers in Round 9 on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 12noon UK).

Roberts, who was born in South Africa, was one of four Dragons in the Wales squad for the Autumn, along with locks Will Rowlands and Ben Carter, and wing Rio Dyer. The 26-year-old made his international debut for Wales against South Africa in November 2021.

He qualified for Wales through his grandmother and moved to Dragons from Ulster for the start of the 2022-23 season.

“Bradley met up with the squad in Johannesburg and joined us on the flight to Port Elizabeth. He will be around the match day squad,” said Dragons head coach, Dai Flanagan.

“It’s great to have him with us. The more quality players we can have around the group the better and we expect a few more to join us for the European game.

“Several boys were involved in three or four games for Wales so it’s important they get some down time. With the intensity of international rugby, we must manage them for the rest of the season.

“It’s the mental stress and expectation that takes it out of you so they will go away and take some time before they come back into the group in the coming weeks.”

The Dragons were beaten 33-25 by the Lions on Johannesburg on the weekend and now face the daunting challenge of the Stormers at home.
