He is going to bring vast knowledge and experience to the front row department where we are currently young and inexperienced
"The Dragons are an ambitious club and the region as a whole has been an integral part to Welsh Rugby over the years. Something I will be proud of representing over the next two seasons."
Stankovich is a smart signing for the Newport club who are drastically lacking experience in a youthful front-row and have struggled with their scrum this season.
Dragons Direct of Rugby Lyn Jones revealed that the experience their new signing would provide was the main reason they wanted to bring him in.
“We are delighted to have made such an experienced addition in Boris,” said Jones. “He is going to bring vast knowledge and experience to the front row department where we are currently young and inexperienced.
“Boris' guidance and leadership within this department will be crucial in helping our growth. We are convinced we have signed the right man."
The prop becomes the third player to join Newport since the New Year following the arrivals of Wales star’s Aled Brew and Lee Byrne.
