"There are quite a few new faces on the teamsheet," said Dragons Head Coach Darren Edwards. "Several of our development and academy players will be out on the park as well as representatives from our Premiership sides.
"Over the next two weeks, not only do our fringe players get the opportunity to challenge for a first team place, it also gives our coaching team the opportunity to challenge themselves and give the players new perspectives.
"Danny(Wilson) will Head Coach the team, Rob Appleyard will focus on the defence and Shaun will lead the attack and backs."
