The Newport Gwent Dragons squad is boosted by the return of Dan Lydiate ahead of their Magners League clash with Munster at Musgrave Park in the Magners League on Sunday 14 September, kick-off 6pm.
The 20 year old, back row is fit for Dragons selection for the first time since a long-term neck injury against Perpignan in the Heineken Cup last November.
The Dragons Academy graduate played the first of his rugby this year for Principality Premiership side Pontypool last weekend, coming on as a second-half replacement against Neath at the Gnoll on Saturday.
Head Coach Paul Turner is delighted to see Dan back playing rugby in the region. He said: "It's great to see Dan back from what could have been a career threatening injury. He played very well for Pontypool coming on as a second-half replacement on Saturday."
Centres Rhodri Gomer Davies and Ashley Smith also return to the squad following minor injury. Turner added: "We have a 24-man squad that is relishing the challenge that faces the region on Sunday at Musgrave Park.
"While we are disappointed with the result against the Scarlets, there are plenty of positive aspects of our game and I was proud of the Dragons team last night."
"I welcome the return of players available for selection and look forward to another a huge performance this weekend.
