Ashley Smith will captain the side as Jason Tovey gets his second consecutive start at fly half with Martyn Thomas covering the 15 position.

Steve Jones starts again at hooker with Duane Goodfield providing cover on the bench.
"We've rewarded those players who did well last weekend" said Dragons Head Coach Paul Turner. Although it's frustrating not to have our younger players available through international commitments, we were able to give opportunities to some of our senior squad last weekend and they made the most of them."
