Chartersis has had an impressive season so far and is thrilled to remain at Rodney Parade.

Newport Gwent Dragons Head Coach Paul Turner is delighted that the lanky lock has put his faith in the region for a further three seasons.
"Luke been consistently good for the region and continues to impress in the boiler house of the second row. He's a great line-out weapon with huge potential and we're thrilled to have him here for a further three years," said Paul.
"We feel that we have a nucleus of players here that will serve the region in years to come and Luke is a major part of this. It's the time of year where recruitment talks are being held and hopefully we will add to Luke's signing in the near future."
