Newport Gwent Dragons coaches Mike Ruddock and Clive Griffiths keep faith with the team who faced Llanelli last weekend and have named one change for their Celtic League match against Neath Swansea Ospreys on Friday night (kick-off 7.05pm).
Lee Jarvis replaces Craig Warlow at fly half with Warlow moving to the replacements bench.
“The team performance had a lot of positives against the Scarlets last Saturday and despite not getting the result they wanted progress is being made,” commented team manager Jim McCreedy. “The first month was always going to be difficult until the team starts to gel. The squad have been working in training on areas that were highlighted during the game and are determined to turn possession into points on Friday.”
No. 8 Ross Beattie has been named in the Scotland squad for the World Cup and will be unavailable for selection until his World Cup duties end.
