Turner has named a strong pack that includes six internationals in an effort to dominate Worcester upfront as they hope to gel before the season starts. The backs hold plenty of flair with the right mix of youth and experience as the attempt to find consistency and flow.
Dragons have spent time bonding as a team over the past month and Tom Willis will lead his men at Rodney Parade hoping it culminates in a positive performance. Head Coach, Turner realises the side maybe undercooked, but still targets a good result.
"I don't enter any game without pushing for a win, crucially I am looking for a positive performance and hope we can impress the fans," added Turner.
Newport Gwent Dragons team to face Worcester Warriors:
Phillip Price, Nigel Hall, Ben Castle, Ali McKenzie, Tom Willis, Steve Jones, Rob Sidoli, Luke Charteris, Adam Jones, Gavin Thomas, Lewis Evans, Grant Webb, James Harris, Dan Lydiate.
