The Dragons have been boosted by Welsh international lock Adam Jones' decision to stay at Rodney Parade for another two seasons whilst scrum half Wayne Evans has signed a one-year extension to his current contract.
The pair, who between them have racked up over 70 appearances for the region, both made their Dragons debuts in the same match in 2007, helping the side to a memorable 23-30 victory over regional rivals the Scarlets at Stradey Park. Since then, they have played leading roles for the Dragons both in the Magners League and the side's European campaigns.
Dragons Head Coach Paul Turner said: "It is great for the squad that Adam and Wayne will be staying with us. They have both been great servants to the region since their arrival and, over the last two years, have become key members of the squad."
Meanwhile Kevin Morgan, Newport Gwent Dragons' international full back, is set to make a return to regional action in Monday's development match against the Ospreys (Llandarcy 7.15pm).
Morgan, capped 48 times by his country, has been out since last June with a ruptured Achilles tendon and could mark his resumption by coming off the replacements bench.
Dragons new signing Aled Brew will be starting for the region after returning from a successful stint with the Welsh Sevens squad in New Zealand.
The WRU has teamed up with Crawshay's to tour Georgia in June. The side, which will be called the Crawshays WRU President's XV, will play Emerging Georgia twice, in a tour which supports the Welsh Government's efforts to grow relations between the two countries.
Wales Sevens are looking to re-group after a disappointing tournament last time out in South Africa. The next double leg in New Zealand and Las Vegas offers Gareth Williams a chance to redeem themselves.
Wales Women's head coach Rhys Edwards was at Llandovery to see the conclusion of an entertaining Women's Regional championship where any one of three teams were in contention for title glory on the last day of action.
