24 Dec 2012


Toby adds his international experience to the men of Gwent. He starts alongside Will Harries, Andy Tuilagi, Phil Price and Nic Cudd. The Dragons will take on the Cardiff Blues in the RaboDirect PRO12, at Cardiff Arms Park on Boxing Day at 2.05pm.

New look back row sees skipper Lewis Evans move to blindside whilst Nic Cudd starts at openside; Faletau then finishes off the trio at number eight, after returning from starting all Welsh Autumn tests.

Hooker Sam Parry gets the nod at two, after an impressive first 40 minutes against Mogliano at Rodney Parade. Sam was taken off at half time, after suffering a dead leg but has now recovered to start in this Christmas Derby.
