Darren Edwards joined the Dragons in the summer of 2009 as Backs Coach alongside Paul Turner.

The former Newport scrum took over as interim Head Coach after Turner left the region in January 2011 and was given the role full-time the following month.

Maesteg-born Edwards joined the Dragons from Harlequins, where he has been coaching since he retired from playing in 2008, and is also part of the Wales Under 18 coaching team.

Edwards began his senior playing career with Saracens in 1996 and joined Newport in 2000, playing 21 times for the club. He also represented London Irish – for whom he made over 100 appearances – Bedford and London Welsh before ending at Leeds Carnegie and hanging up his boots last year.

A member of the 2003 Wales squad, he won representative honours with Wales A, Sevens, Under 21, Students and Under 18 and was also played for the Barbarians in International matches against England, Scotland and Wales.
