Scrum-half Connor Dever will bolster RGC 1404's backs after signing from Newport ahead of the launch of the new Super Rygbi Cymru season.

The 25-year-old will join up with the squad ahead of September's opening game bringing a wealth of experience with him.

After graduating from Sale Sharks Academy, Dever was released in 2017 and played for Rotherham before spending a number of years playing across Europe.

After spells with Italian club Biella Edinol RFC and German outfit Frankfurt 1880, Dever headed Down Under.

After initially taking the field for Sydney-based Gordon Highlanders he then joined Scarborough Rugby in Perth before returning to the UK. Last season he featured for Shropshire side Newport in England's National League Two West.

Dever is the latest new signing for RGC, alongside Billy McBryde and Danny Cross, as the Colwyn Bay-based club looks to add vital experience to its promising young core ready to begin the new Super Rygbi Cymru season in September.

"I was delighted when I found out RGC was interested in signing me," said Connor. 

"I have always followed their progress and now I'll be a part of the upcoming squad. It's a proud moment for me and my family and I am really looking forward to the new season."
