England born back rower Colin Charvis joined the Dragons in 2006 on a one-year contract. He made his debut for the club in August in a pre-season friendly against the Cornish Pirates. His former clubs include London Welsh, Swansea, the Newcastle Falcons and French side Tarbes.
Charvis has scored 20 tries for his country, making him the leading try scorer among all Welsh forwards. He captained Wales in the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia and also featured in the 1999 Rugby World Cup.

Charvis also has 2 caps for the British and Irish Lions; both appearances were against Australia in 2001. Further representative honours include Wales Students, Wales U21 and Wales A.

After appearances against England, Scotland, Ireland and Italy in the 2006 RBS Six Nations Charvis had a spell away from the international scene. However, his blistering form for the Dragons throughout the 2006–2007 season saw him named in Gareth Jenkins's touring squad to Australia in May 2007.

He appeared in both Tests and following the tour, Charvis was named in Gareth Jenkins's 41-man preliminary Rugby World Cup 2007 summer training squad. He made the final 30-man squad in August after playing in the Test against England and made substitute appearances in both Invesco Perpetual Summer Series matches against Agentina and France.

Charvis made a try-scoring substitute appearance in Wales's opening Pool B match against Canada, and made the starting line-ups for the remaining Pool clashes with Australia, Japan and Fiji.

In November 2007 Wales Caretaker Coach Nigel Davies included Charvis in his starting line-up for the inaugural Prince William Cup clash with South Africa. Despite the 34-12 defeat to the reigning world champions Charvis scored his 22nd try for his country in the clash, becoming the world's top forward try-scorer to date.
