Newport Gwent Dragons have confirmed that Fijian back row Netani Talei has left the Welsh region with immediate effect.

The 31-year-old had one season with the Men of Gwent and made 20 appearances for them during last season.

Talei underwent foot surgery in August and was set to be sidelined until the New Year.

“I would like to thank Netani for his contribution to the Dragons over the past 12 months,” commented Dragons CEO Gareth Davies.

“He is a dedicated rugby player and has been a great addition to the squad over the past season.

“We wish him all the best with his recovery and his future in rugby.”
