Cape Town - Front-rower Brok Harris has pledged his future to the Dragons after the South African agreed a new contract at the Rodney Parade outfit.

Harris becomes the 10th player to put pen to paper on a new deal to remain at the Welsh club.

Harris, 34, moved to the Dragons in 2014 and has clocked up over a century of appearances since his regional debut against Harlequins.

The South African, who qualified for Wales through residency in 2017, previously played for 93 Super Rugby matches for the Stormers and represented Western Province on 120 occasions in the Currie Cup.

"I'm happy to get the contract sorted and out of the way, to concentrate on rugby now," said Harris.

"I'm very excited to be back in training in the team environment for a sixth season with the Dragons having had a few weeks away from rugby.

"There is a lot of talent at the Dragons and I'm excited to be part of the squad and to contribute in leading this team on the road to victory.

"I believe that we'll be able to turn this ship around and give the Rodney faithful something to cheer about."

Harris, who can operate on both sides of the scrum, made his 100th appearance for the region last season when he lined up against Clermont Auvergne in the European Challenge Cup.

Brok joins Lewis Evans, Matthew Screech, Lloyd Fairbrother, Tavis Knoyle, Arwel Robson, Adam Warren, Connor Edwards, Jared Rosser and Ashton Hewitt in agreeing new terms with the Dragons, while the Men of Gwent have also completed the acquisition of fly-half Sam Davies and prop Jack Cosgrove for next season.
