John makes Dragons loan move

Ospreys centre Ben John has completed a short term loan move to Newport Gwent Dragons.


The 23-year old, who has made 33 Ospreys appearances, linked up with the Dragons for training today and will provide additional options to an injury hit back line on a month long loan.


Rugby General Manager, Andrew Millward, explained:


“The logic behind this move is pretty straight forward. Ben needs game time at this level to keep him match sharp, and the Dragons need a centre to cover for injuries. It’s an agreement that suits all parties, and is exactly how regional rugby should work. Ben will get some time on the field while out on loan and come back ready to challenge for the Ospreys jersey.”
