The dynamic back row is one of the rising stars at Dragons after a string of eye-catching performances in recent years.
Basham, who hails from Talywain, just a few miles north of Pontypool, in the Torfaen borough area of Gwent, made his senior debut for the region in the Anglo-Welsh Cup clash with Scarlets in January 2018.
He started out at junior level with Talywain and has been developed in the Dragons Academy. He has also impressed on the international stage with Wales U20s and Wales Sevens.
Basham, who has played for both Bedwas and Cross Keys in the Premiership, made nine appearances in the 2018/19 season and was named the Young Player of the Season at the region’s end-of-season awards.
Basham made his debut for the Dragons in 2017 having previously played for the Dragons academy, Bedwas and Cross Keys.
Basham was first selected in the senior Wales squad to face the Barbarians in an uncapped international in November 2019. He was then called up for the Six Nations squad of 2020 alongside his former Wales U20 captain Dewi Lake on 5 February 2020.
