Following yesterday’s news confirming that lock Ed Scragg is to join the Cornish Pirates for the 2021/22 season, it is also confirmed that full-back/fly-half Carwyn Penny will be taking a similar path from Dragons Rugby.
Aged just 22, the former Wales under 18s and 20s player, who was educated at Newport High School and Clifton College, and was a member of the Gloucester Academy, has also previously played in the Welsh Premiership for Cross Keys, Bargoed, and Ebbw Vale, and, when at Gloucester, for National Two team Cinderford. As for the Dragons, he made his debut in a European Challenge Cup tie away to Castres in January 2020.
Looking forward to working with Carwyn, Cornish Pirates’ joint head coach Gavin Cattle has said:
We were looking for a different dynamic for someone who cover the fly-half position and the back three, and Carwyn fits that mould.
In his younger days he played a lot at 10 and more recently at 15, so to have both attributes provides a valued asset as someone who can not only offer much to the squad but also has the potential to take his game further.
Carwyn has also commented:
Thrilled ahead of my move to Cornwall, which is a beautiful part of the country, I look forward to the challenge that the Championship brings and am delighted to have to opportunity to play for a great club.
