Ian Nimmo signed for the Dragons in 2012 from the Cornish Pirates.
He was born in Harlow, but at the age of 14 decided to move to Perthshire, Scotland to live with his father. Having lived his entire life in Essex, the move proved a culture shock, however there was fishing and shooting to enjoy and an excellent opportunity to develop his rugby career.
Nimmo has won representative honors with the Scotland Under 19 and Under 21 sides, appearing in the Under 21 World Cups in 2005 and 2006.
26 year old Nimmo was named in this season’s RFU Championship Dream XV and helped the Pirates to the Championship final against London Welsh.
Very reliable at the set piece, 6’7” Nimmo will bolster the Dragons pack but he will also provide a valuable contribution in the loose with hard hits and strong carries. He comes into the squad following the departure of captain and second row Luke Charteris to Perpignan.
Ian is a former Scotland under 21 international and has been on the books of Leicester Tigers where he played for the senior team against Argentina in 2007.
He scored three tries in the 26 games he played for the Cornish Pirates last season and started both legs of the Championship semi final and final.
