London Welsh have signed flanker Darren Waters from Newport Gwent Dragons for the 2014-15 Premiership season.

He began his career at Pontypridd, scoring 11 tries in two seasons before moving to Newport in 2011.

However, the 29-year-old back row made only 17 appearances over three seasons for the Dragons.

"I've known Darren for a long time, and he's a sheer raw talent," head coach Justin Burnell told the London Welsh website.external-link

"He's phenomenal at the breakdown, one of the best I've seen. He's going to be an absolutely fantastic asset and a really positive addition to our environment."

Waters is the club's 18th signing during the off-season, but they have also released 25 players, including New-Zealand scrum-half Tyson Keats.
