The versatile back row has made 25 appearances for the Dragons since his debut in 2016 against Zebre Rugby. Prior to that time, he was included in the Dragons squad for the Premiership Singha Sevens Tournament, in which he made a huge impact in aiding the side to win the title, scoring the winning try in the final against Wasps. 

The Dragons academy product has also made big strides in the Wales U20s set up and impressed spectators with his ball carrying skills during the Grand Slam campaign in 2016.

Additionally, Keddie has made appearances for Principality Premiership side Ebbw Vale performing well for them in the final against Pontypridd RFC, where the Steelmen were crowned 2015/16 Principality Premiership Champions.

The talented youngster said; “Growing up I had always wanted to play for the Dragons as it is my home region, so it means a lot to me to have been given the opportunity to stay here for the next 3 years as I feel the club is going in the right direction both on and off the field.

“I have enjoyed my time here so far under Bernard and to be given this opportunity is a great privilege to me and I look forward to doing so for the next few years.

“It is really exciting times at the Dragons and I wanted to be a part of that.”

The 21-year-old suffered a shoulder injury during the Dragons victory over Connacht in September, in the GUINNESS PRO14 competition and is keen to get back into the starting line-up once he returns to full fitness; “Once I am back fit I hope to earn my place in the team again, playing some good rugby and being part of a successful Dragons team.”

Dragons Head Coach, Bernard Jackman added: “Harrison was one of our stand out performers in the early part of the season until he, unfortunately, picked up his shoulder injury. He has been incredibly diligent with his rehab and he will come back available for selection over the coming weeks. 

“For him to commit to us for at least the next three seasons is a huge boost for the region.” 

After signing the new contract, Keddie has picked out Caerleon RFC to receive a cash donation through the Dragons Pathway Recognition Award scheme. This scheme seeks to recognize the club or school that played a vital role in the player’s development to become a professional. Before Christmas Leon Brown presented a £500 cheque to St Joseph’s RC High School.

Keddie joins Joe Davies, Jack Dixon and James Benjamin as well as Welsh Internationals Leon Brown, Elliot Dee, Ollie Griffiths and Cory Hill in extending his stay with the Dragons, who also welcome newcomers Ross Moriarty, Richard Hibbard, Rhodri Williams, Jordan Williams, Rhodri Davies and Huw Taylor next season.
