The Newport Gwent Dragons announce a boosted squad looking to build on their recent win against Ulster at Ravenhill when they welcome Edinburgh to Rodney Parade in the Magners League on Friday 26 September (kick-off 7.30pm).
Head Coach Paul Turner is hopeful that the Dragons can impress in front of the home crowd on Friday evening.
"The players have been excellent in training this week and with the same self-belief from the last game, I'm sure we can gather a strong performance against Edinburgh for our home fans," he said.
Dragons captain Tom Willis enjoyed his first victory of the Magners League at Ravenhill says more hard work is needed to build on the success. "We need to build momentum after our first win of the season," he said.
"I'm hoping that now we've felt that winning feeling, the boys will grow an extra arm and a leg for this weekend's clash with Edinburgh," said Tom.
"We know that Edinburgh are a tidy and effective side and they will arrive with confidence after their victory last weekend. It is vital that we continue to build as a region and I look forward to a huge performance from the Dragons at home this weekend."
Turner added: "Edinburgh travel with the confidence of a good start to the season and a fine win against the Scarlets last week and the task will be anything but easy.
"They're a quality squad who are capable of playing attractive football and, as last week's results demonstrated, there are no easy games in the Magners League."
Lock Andy Hall welcomed his return to the squad for the first time this season after recovering from a back injury, and said: "I'm pleased to return to the squad this week particularly after the win last weekend which has boosted everyone and preparations for the game on Friday have been great. I'm looking forward to getting out on the pitch again for the region."
Turner expressed his support for "I am glad to see Andy back with the squad and I am grateful to Luke Charteris and Adam Jones who have performed tremendously in his absence. The Dragons are indebted to the work that they've both put in so far this season."
