Five Dragons in Welsh Squad

Five Newport Gwent Dragons players have been named in Gareth Jenkins' Welsh squad for the RBS Six Nations Championship.

Kath McCarthy | 22/01/2007

Five Newport Gwent Dragons players have been named in Gareth Jenkins' Welsh squad for the RBS Six Nations Championship.

Kevin Morgan, Ceri Sweeney, Gareth Cooper, Ian Gough and Colin Charvis have all been selected.

Jenkins has named a 33-man squad who open their Championship challenge against Ireland on Sunday February 4th.

Speaking on the inclusion of Charvis, Jenkins said, "We have brought Colin back into the fold at the age of 35 and his performances at regional level justify his selection in the light of the injury problems we have in his position. There are a number of players who have not been considered in our initial thinking due to injuries and lack of game time. Ian Evans and Jonathan Thomas have both been out of contention for the Ospreys with shoulder problems and Dafydd Jones is just returning for the Scarlets. Their absence has paved the way for Colin's return. His high level of experience is an added bonus."
