We are proud to showcase our sponsored player for the Wales Dragons
The 28-year-old adds depth to the senior training squad alongside fellow nines Rhodri Williams, Tavis Knoyle and young starlets Dafydd Buckland and Dan Babos.
- “Luke is an experienced and talented scrum-half who I know well from our time together at Worcester Warriors,” said director of rugby Ryan.”
- “He will give competition at scrum-half alongside Rhodri and Tavis.”
- “There’s young Welsh talent at the Dragons, and we will give them chances to perform, however, it’s crucial for their development that they get their opportunities at the right time.”
- “We’re excited to see the impact Luke can have with us during this loan and thank Alan Solomons and Worcester for agreeing to a move which I know will benefit all parties.”
Tunbridge Wells-born Baldwin has made 36 appearances for Worcester, scoring four tries, since his debut in January 2016.
The livewire nine, who also had a short-term loan with Harlequins in March, was previously part of the Bristol side that reached the 2013/14 Greene King IPA Championship final.
Baldwin began his career at Saracens and made five first-team appearances after signing his first professional contract with the club in 2010.
Baldwin said: “I’m really pleased that the loan has been agreed. It’s a fresh start and challenge for me so I’m hugely excited about the move to Wales.
- “I know what Dean (Ryan) is about and saw first-hand the impact he had at Worcester, so I can’t wait to see what he can achieve with the Dragons.”
- “I’ve spoken to a few friends who’ve played in the Guinness PRO14 and they’ve all told me it’s a great league to be a part of.”
- “It’s a different style to the English Premiership and a new set of teams and opponents to face. I’m looking forward to that new test every week.”
- “I’m now just looking forward to getting back playing, enjoying my rugby and seeing what impact I can have both on and off the pitch.”
