Four changes for Dragons
April 24, 2008
Newport Gwent Dragons make four changes to the team that faced Connacht ahead of their game against the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium on Friday night.
Kevin Morgan comes in at full back for the injured Martyn Thomas and Ben Daly is selected at hooker as Steve Jones moves to the bench.
Andrew Hall will play in the second row for Adam Jones, due to illness and Richard Parks returns from injury with Michael Owen moving to the replacements bench.
Ahead of the match Head Coach Paul Turner commented, "We assessed the squad after last weekend and the changes made are due to both combination and form.
"It's good to have Richard Parks back after injury. The players are well aware of the need to put in a huge performance at the Liberty Stadium on Friday."
The Dragons team is as follows:
Kevin Morgan, Gareth Wyatt, Paul Emerick, Rhodri Gomer Davies, Richard Mustoe, Ceri Sweeney, Andy Williams, Adam Black, Ben Daly, Rhys Thomas, Andrew Hall, Luke Chateris, Colin Charvis (captain), Richard Parks, Joe Bearman.
