The Dragons back row, who joined the Men of Gwent in 2005, made an immediate impact with his open style of play and his prowess at the back of the lineout.

A crowd-favourite, Joe joined The Dragons from the Cornish Pirates in 2005 and has since won over 60 appearances which proves he is a vital member of this squad. As well as having a great physical presence, Bearman is a dynamic runner and line-breaker.

Joe also picked up the Magners League Player of the Month Award for January 2008.

It’s not only the Magners League who have recognised Joe’s ability, after gaining Welsh residency in 2009, he was in-line for being selected in the Welsh autumn international squad before suffering an injured groin. Sadly, the same injury prevented Joe from pushing for a place in Gatland’s 2010 Six Nations squad. After undergoing surgery at the start of February 2010, it is hoped that he will be back for the Men of Gwent before the end of the season.

With more than 60 appearances under his belt Joe brings the Dragons that extra level of experience, and with his ability improving with every game, hopefully he can set his sights on a Welsh spot on his return to fitness.
