There has been good news for the Dragons as three more players are leaving the physio's room to take up a place in the squad to face Gloucester in round 6 of the Heineken Cup this weekend, (Sunday 12:45pm)
Dragons prop Ben Castle is set to return to action this weekend after suffering a ruptured bicep in the region's pre-season friendly against Worcester. Scrum half Wayne Evans is also back from a knee injury and is joined in the squad by centre Ashley Smith who has been out for several weeks with a broken foot.
Luke Charteris has also been declared fit following bruising to the shoulder last weekend at Glasgow.
"I'm delighted to have Ashley, Wayne and Ben back in the side this weekend," said Dragons Head Coach Paul Turner. "We've missed Wayne over the Christmas period and I'd like to say a big thank you to Danny Lee who literally came from the surgical bed to postpone his shoulder operation and play for us all over Christmas. It wasn't easy, and he played well despite carrying the injury."
"I'm also very pleased for Ben to be back in the side. It's been a frustrating time for everyone, particularly for Ben and having had a long, hard road to recovery, this is his opportunity to have a major impact as we head into the back leg of the season."
