Dragons sign Bristol centre

Dragons have announced the signing of back Thretton Palamo from Bristol on a short-term loan.

The 28-year-old linked up with the Welsh Region on Monday at their Ystrad Mynach training base, as they prepare for their PRO14 clash against Ulster this weekend.

The versatile player, who can play in the centre and on the wing, joined Bristol last season and will add support to the Dragons backs due to the recent injuries a few members of the squad have sustained.

The American International represented the USA during the 2007 World Cup, becoming the youngest player in history to feature in the tournament at that time.

Dragons Head Coach Bernard Jackman commented: “He is a really good athlete, he is powerful and strong and has been surrounded by good environments since when he was with Saracens as well as during his time at the American 7s programme for the Olympics.

“I know him from when he was with Saracens and he’ll be a good addition to the squad, I look forward to seeing him play. He will be included in the match-day 23 for Ulster.”
