Dragons snap up scrum-half Mike Petri from Sale Sharks

Scrum-half Mike Petri has won 17 caps for the United States

Newport Gwent Dragons have signed United States scrum-half Mike Petri for the rest of the season as back-up to Wayne Evans.

The 26-year-old from Brooklyn joins from Sale Sharks where he failed to get first team chances.

The Dragons have been left without cover for Evans since the retirement of ex-All Black Danny Lee due to ongoing injury problems.

Petri could make his Magners League debut against Connacht on Thursday.
