NEWPORT GWENT DRAGONS SQUAD UPDATE

Newport Gwent Dragons will take on Italian opponents Zebre in the RaboDirect PRO12 on Saturday 28th March, KO 16:00. The men of Gwent have won all previous encounters with Zebre both home and away.

The region did not suffer any further injuries to any players in their last home game against Connacht Rugby in Round 17.  But prop lock Dan Way who injured himself in February is still out with his back injury but is on the road to recovery.

 

T. Rhys Thomas who suffered a fracture to his hand during the match against Ulster Rugby is due to return to light training next week alongside the squad, so is not up selection against Zebre.

 

Young scrum half Luc Jones is also not up for selection as he has a knee injury.

 

Meanwhile Welsh international Hallam Amos, who suffered an injury to his ankle against Leinster Rugby in February, has returned to mix and is available for selection. He is joined by scrumhalf Jonathan Evans who also returns to the squad after recovering from his PCL injury.

 

Lyn Jones and his coaching staff will also get another boost to the squad as young guns Steffan Jones and Cory Hill return to the fold after suffering with hamstring injuries.

 

Backs

Dan Evans, Hallam Amos, Will Harries, Matthew Pewtner, Tom Prydie, Lewis Robling, Jack Dixon, Pat Leach, Ashley Smith, Ross Wardle, Kris Burton, Steffan Jones, Jason Tovey, Jonathan Evans, Wayne Evans, Richie Rees.

 

Forwards

Aaron Coundley, Owen Evans, Phil Price, Elliot Dee, Sam Parry, Duncan Bell, Nathan Buck, Bruce Douglas, Andrew Coombs, Cory Hill, Matthew Screech, Rob Sidoli, Lewis Evans, Jevon Groves, Nic Cudd, Darren Waters, Taulupe Faletau, Netani Talei.
