One-cap Wales three-quarter Nathan Brew has returned to Newport Gwent Dragons from Neath on a one-year contract.

Brew, still only 28, spent seven years at Rodney Parade with Newport then the Dragons before leaving in 2007.

The centre or wing joined the Scarlets but moved to Bristol the following year then joined up with Neath last summer.

"I am ecstatic to be back here, if I am honest ever since I left the Dragons I have regretted it," said Brew, who joins younger brother Aled in Newport.

"The move to the Scarlets just didn't click and then Bristol got relegated so I was left with two options - go to France or drop to the Premiership and get back to basics."

Brew, who has played for Wales Sevens and the national Under-19 and U21 sides, won his sole cap against Romania in 2003.

I would like to finish with more than just the one cap but it is all about getting back with the Dragons

"He is an experienced centre or wing and we are really looking forward to him staking a claim in the Dragons team," said Dragons rugby manager Robert Beale.

"He has been out of pro rugby for a couple of years but from what he has shown in pre-season training it shouldn't take him long to get back up to speed, we are delighted to have him back."

Brew says he has his hunger back for the game and has not ruled out a return to the international fold.

"I have one Wales cap and was on the bench three times, I would like to finish with more than just the one cap but it is all about getting back with the Dragons," he said.

"I don't think I am too dissimilar to Aled apart from I can also play in the centre. I will add that utility aspect that I can play in different positions.

"It's a big season for me, hopefully I can get back.

"I am 28 and I still feel I have a good few years left. I want to regain a place in the squad.

"I am not expecting to be selected straight away but hopefully I can get back to the level I think I am capable of playing.

"I have only got a one-year contract but hopefully things will go well and I will be here a lot longer."
