Dragon Center Connor Edwards joins Doncaster on loan


DRAGONS-Center Connor Edwards changes to the Doncaster Knights of the English championship for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old from Croesyceiliog moved to Yorkshire to win season after failing to appear for Dean Ryan’s side in 2020/21.

It will be a third term in England’s second division, having previously played for Hartpury and Jersey.

The center belongs to the generation of young players who have been handicapped by the lack of Celtic Cup or Welsh Premiership rugby.

Edwards played for the A-Team in friendly matches against the Scarlets and Cardiff Blues was an unused substitute against Leinster a fortnight ago.

He will travel to Doncaster to try to revive his career after being handicapped by injuries since 2017/18.

Edwards played 10 games under Bernard Jackman and stood out with his direct run and his strong defense in midfield.

However, he then suffered a fractured cheekbone and torn ligament in his knee, which ruined his subsequent campaign.

Edwards returned to three games in 2019-20, with a start against Leinster and appearances from the bench against Enisei-STM and Benetton.

Now he’ll try to make an impression at Castle Park when the Knights kick off their season against former Dragons boss Paul Turner’s Ampthill on Sunday.

Edwards joins a Doncaster team that includes former Scarlets and RGC half aviators Billy McBryde and former Merthyr streaker Kyle Evans.
