After a win against the Ospreys and narrow loss against the Blues over the Christmas period, the Dragons will be looking to take points from their visit to The Scarlets new ground on New Years Day Kick Off 5.15pm.
The Dragons who beat the Scarlets home and away last season and lost by two point at home in the early part of this season now they have something to prove as they take on a team who have only won once at their new ground.
In looking forward to the game Dragons coach Paul Turner commented; "We were obviously disappointed with losing to the Blues in front of such fantastic support on Boxing Day, but in terms of an overall performance there were a lot of positives and we will be looking to build on that and the win we had against the Opsreys.
"Equally the Scarlets will be looking to make amends for the loss at the Liberty stadium and rested Stephen Jones and Simon Easterby in preparation for this fixture. It promises to be another tough encounter and as recent fixtures between us show they are always close run matches."
The Dragons also include in their squad recent signing from Nottingham front row forward Nigel Hall.
