Dragons have issued an injury update ahead of the squad’s return to Guinness PRO14 action next Saturday against Benetton Rugby at Rodney Parade (kick-off 7.35pm).
Dean Ryan’s men open the next block of fixtures later this month with home fixtures against Italian outfit Benetton and South African side Toyota Cheetahs sandwiching a trip to Glasgow Warriors.
This week has seen a welcome return of a number of key senior players into training, including scrum half Rhodri Williams, wing Dafydd Howells and forwards Lewis Evans, Brandon Nansen and Nic Cudd.
The Men of Gwent also expect to be boosted by hooker Richard Hibbard, Will Talbot-Davies, Owen Jenkins and Tyler Morgan resuming training shortly.
However, there is unfortunate news for Rio Dyer who joins Ryan Bevington, Josh Lewis and Jordan Williams as a long-term absentee.
