Profile

Jason spent two years with the Dragons Academy before joining making his senior debut in April 2008. Equally able at fullback and outside half, Jason shows an exceptional composure and maturity on the ball which makes him a great asset to the side in either position.

 
An exciting young talent, Jason made his Newport debut against Aberavon in 2006 at Rodney Parade and became youngest ever Newport Premier League player. He scored 2 tries from fullback against Maesteg Sept 16th 2006 and became Newport's youngest Premier League scorer.

Although it was originally planned for Jason to play predominantly for Newport in the 2008/09 season, a combination of injury problems within the regional side and Jason’s exceptional performance meant that he quickly became a fixture in the Men of Gwent side. He played predominantly at full back, scoring 6 tries during over the course of the season although towards the end of the season got a run of games at fly half.

 
The versatile back has racked up more records on the way, becoming the first ever Dragons player to get a try hat-trick in a competitive match when he went over the line 3 times against Ulster in 2009 and then breaking the record for points scored in a match against the Ospreys in the LV= Cup in January 2010 with 2 conversions and 7 penalties to his name.

 
Representing Wales at Under 20 level, Jason was named in the senior Welsh squad to tour North America in 2008, but a Heineken Cup playoff prevented him from taking up his spot.

2009/2010 saw Tovey make 22 appearances, again starting the season at full back but beginning a run of games in the 10 shirt in the January win against the Ospreys in the LV= Cup and continuing until the end of the season, helping the Dragons to finish as the 3rd palced Welsh region in the league and automatically qualify for the Heinken Cup fpr the following season.
Jason established himself as the first choice fly half for the region at the beginning of the 2010/2011 season, appearing 26 times, only 4 of which came as a replacement. Tovey racked up 169 points that season but it wasn't enough to prevent the Dragons finishing as 4th placed region in the league. Jason had done enough to earn the recognition of the Welsh selectors again, being named as one of the forty-five man training squad for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

Tovey had to withdraw from the training squad that travelled to Poland for the RWC training camp through injury and was thus unable to compete for a place in the final 30 man squad for the tournament.

 

Tovey left the Dragons for the 2012/13 season and moved to rivals Cardiff Blues, but has returned to his home region to take up the challenge of the number 10 jersey.
