Head Coach Paul Turner is hopeful that the Dragons can impress in front of the home crowd on Friday evening.

"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.
