Torfaen Tigers are pleased to announce that former Wales Dragongearts full back Scott Bessant has joined the clubs coaching set up.

Bessant started his rugby league career at the Tigers, winning the first of his Dragonhearts caps whilst at the club before joining Newport Titans playing primarily at full back but equally at home at Stand Off or in the Centres. He represented the Dragonhearts from 2005-2010 before retiring from playing.

He took over as head coach of Newport Titans in 2014, guiding them to the WRL plate final.

The appointment sees him link up with ex Dragonhearts teammate Jamie Williams, who is head coach at the club. Scott will work primarily with the first team but also offer position specific advise to the clubs junior players.

Of his appointment, Bessant said "I'm delighted to be joining the club where it all began for me, the club has made massive progress on and off the field and have big ambitions moving forward, they have a talented squad and I can't wait to get stuck in."

Chairman Rob Davies added: "Scott brings with him a wealth of experience to the club and am certain he will complement Jamie and Kyle (Scrivens) brilliantly."
