Newport Gwent Dragons Head Coach Paul Turner has named his full quartet of Welsh squad players in his squad for Saturday's crunch match against Heineken Cup finalists Leinster.
Luke Charteris, Jason Tovey, Dan Lydiate and Lewis Evans are all part of the squad looking to secure automatic Heineken Cup qualification and avoid the playoff trip to Italy at the end of the month.
"The whole squad has worked very hard this season," said Turner "But the end of the league is coming down to the wire and it is crucial that we keep focus for this last game.
"It is disappointing to have lost Joe Bearman for this match, who has been putting in some very strong performances recently, but having three forwards from the Welsh squad available for selection is clearly a good position to be in and I am confident in the personnel I have selected.
"Although Leinster may be more focussed on their game next week and will probably rest a few of their players, they have a strength in depth which means they can pose a massive threat, whichever side they put out."
