Bristol Rugby have confirmed Gavin Henson will leave the club at the end of the season, to join Newport Gwent Dragons on a two year contract.

The former Wales fly-half put in a man of the match performance against Bath earlier last month, but has struggled with injuries for most of the season.

Bristol Rugby remain bottom of the Premiership after losing to league rivals Worcester, with only a handful of games remaining.

I have really enjoyed my time here at Bristol but when the opportunity came along to join the Dragons and return to Wales, I couldn’t say no.

I still have loads to offer and I know what Kingsley wants from me. I’m especially looking forward to pitting myself against the current Welsh players, and hopefully becoming a catalyst and mentor for the tremendous talent that is in the Dragons squad.

– Gavin Henson
