Taylor to lead Dragons XV


Back row Huw Taylor will captain the side as Dragons XV face Scarlets A in a friendly fixture at Rodney Parade on Friday lunchtime (kick-off 12noon).

The clash between the two regions has been organised to give players valuable game time ahead of the resumption of Guinness PRO14 action next weekend.

Taylor packs down with Ben Fry and Taine Basham in the back riow while Dragons Academy product Ben Carter plays alongside Joe Maksymiw in the second row.

Conor Maguire, who this week was confirmed as signing for the region on a short-term deal, plays in a front row alongside Ellis Shipp and Lloyd Fairbrother.

Josh Lewis and Luke Baldwin combine at half back while Owen Jenkins, Jared Rosser and Dafydd Howells add firepower in the back three.

Wales Under-20s ace Aneurin Owen plays at inside centre alongside Joe Thomas who plays the game as part of a trial at Dragons.

Supporters are advised that the game is all set to be streamed on our facebook and youtube channels on Friday lunchtime.
