Scrum-half Jonathan Evans has signed a new two-year deal with Newport-Gwent Dragons which keeps him at the club until the end of the 2014-15 season.
His rivals for the No 9 shirt, Joe Bedford and Wayne Evans, have suffered injuries this season and Evans has taken advantage, making 18 appearances for the Dragons, with 12 starts.
"With injuries to both Joe and Wayne at the start of the season, it gave me the opportunity to get the ball rolling early. Since then I have been given further opportunities to start and have grabbed them with both hands," he told the club website.
"I enjoy playing for the Dragons and thank them for giving us young players the opportunity to perform on a weekly basis.
"I look forward to another two seasons here."
Director of Rugby Robert Beale added: "We're delighted that Jonathan has decided to extend his current contract at the Dragons.
"He's a bright young prospect and we are looking forward to him playing over the next two years for our region."
