“I am delighted that we have recruited Rynard,” said Jones. “It’s another piece of the jigsaw and an important signing in the development of the region.
“He will offer size, strength and experience to the second row and will act as a catalyst in the growth of our current crop of young Welsh locks.
"Not only will Rynard will be a real physical presence in the pack but he will help to bring along Matthew Screech, Cory Hill and Joe Davies."
Dragons fans will be hoping to see more celebrations from Landman like the one in the video below...although sadly this try was disallowed for a forward pass so it was all for nothing!
At 6ft 5inches, the South African is a strong ball carrier, good lineout operator and is mobile throughout the game.
Landman has played four games for the Cheetahs in Super Rugby this season and is yet another experienced signing for the men of Gwent who have been showing strong intent ahead of the new campaign.
