3 Sep 2010


Paul Turner has named his side to face Connacht at The Sportsground, Galway tomorrow in the big Magners League kick-off.

Dragons captain, Tom Willis, has dropped out of the match-day squad while Jason Tovey has moved back to his familiar fullback bearth to accommodate Matthew Jones at outside half.

Welsh International, Luke Charteris, captains the side in the absence of Willis, while experienced Kiwi, Danny Lee starts in the number 9 shirt.

Elsewhere in the side Rhodri Gomer-Davies returns, having recover from a knock sustained in the London Irish game, to start and Robin Sowden-Taylor gets the nod over fellow international Gavin Thomas.
