Former Dragon Brew announces retirement

22/12/2020

Former Dragons wing Aled Brew has retired from rugby at the age of 34 after a fantastic career that saw him light up Rodney Parade.

Former Wales international Brew, who is the leading try scorer at the region with 43 tries, announced his decision after his recent spell at Scarlets.

He is one of only four players to have played for all four Welsh regions having also been at Ospreys and Cardiff Blues as well as Scarlets. Current Dragon Tavis Knoyle, Liam Davies and Tal Selley are the others to have done so.

Brew, who also had a successful spell with Bath in the English Premiership, followed in the footsteps of his brother Nathan to make 120 appearances for the Dragons over three spells and scored 43 tries.

"After 17 years in the game I've finally made the decision to hang up the boots," he posted on social media.

"I've been lucky enough to spend half my life playing this game and I wouldn't change a thing (although my knees may disagree). "It's given me so many opportunities and an abundance of memories and friendships that I will cherish.

"I've had the privilege of playing for a few amazing clubs with the best supporters you could wish for. I am so grateful to those who have supported me.

"I've given 100 per cent to the game and there's no denying I'm going to miss it.

"While the path of my next chapter is yet to be determined, one thing remains certain and that is that I will attack the next chapters with the same passion, commitment, graft and honesty as I did during my entire rugby career."

Everyone at Dragons passes on their congratulations to Aled on his wonderful career - good luck for the next chapter!
