St Helens starlet Calvin Wellington has returned to Rugby Union with Welsh side Dragons on a two-year deal.

The centre has spent the last three years in Rugby League with the Saints.

Wellington, 21, made his debut for Saints at the Dacia Magic Weekend in 2016 but it was his only first team appearance for the club.

He also played a game for Sheffield Eagles on dual-registration in the 2017 season.

Wellington signed a professional contract with the club after impressing on two-week trial after catching the eye of Saints scouts playing Union for Aberavon Quins.

He also played League for Wales at Under-16s and Under-18s level as well as playing in the junior set up at South Wales Scorpions.

And Saints CEO Mike Rush thanked Wellington for all his efforts at the club.

He said: “Calvin has been a popular member of the club since he initially joined our Academy and we are sad to see him leave.

“Calvin had agreed to stay with the club in 2018 but the lure back to rugby union and his home was too strong. We wish him all the best for the future.”
