Profile

Newport Gwent Dragons managed to recapture Matthew Watkins from Gloucester Rugby in the summer of 2009.

With 19 Welsh caps, Matthew brings international experience back to Rodney to boost the back line after spells with the Scarlets and Gloucester. The Newport-born international scored 30 Magners League tries in his previous stints with Newport and the Scarlets.

Matthew possesses the pace and power needed to dominate opposition.

His return from Kingsholm delighted home fans as he strides for a successful season with the Dragons.

Although a hip injury kept him out of the Dragons side early in the season, a return to fitness has enabled Matthew to start showing what he is capable of.

Off the pitch, Matthew is a keen golfer.
