Dragons set to snap up Kiwi pair

Newport Gwent Dragons

The Dragons are set to sign two New Zealanders as they start their summer recruitment drive, BBC Sport Wales understands.

Former All Black hooker Tom Willis, 29, who won five caps for New Zealand in 2002, is poised to join from Waikato.

And highly-rated Southland lock Hoani Macdonald, 29, has Super 14 experience with the Highlanders.

The Dragons are also said to be interested in Ospreys former Wales cap Tal Selley who is on loan at the Blues.

Selley has also played for the Scarlets and would become the first player to represent all four regions.

He is likely to be a replacement for wing Richard Mustoe, who is leaving Rodney Parade after a season on loan from the Ospreys.
