Profile

An extremely talented scrum half who if stays injury free is a valuable asset to The Dragons. Now in his third season at the region. Missed half of last season after suffering a dislocated shoulder in the Wales Six Nations match against England. A British Lion he toured New Zealand in the summer of 05. Won a record breaking 15 caps with the Wales U21 team and burst onto the international scene in 2001 and scored a try on his debut against Italy with only eight minutes on the clock. Previously with the Celtic Warriors and before that with Guinness Premiership outfit Bath, Coops has earned a huge reputation in the game. Renowned for his defence destroying breaks that can tear the opposition in half is a quality and consistent passer. Is expected to be fully fit for the start of the season which is good new for The Dragons team.
