Newport Gwent Dragons have announced a 24-man squad ahead of their Magners League clash with Leinster at RDS Dublin on Saturday.
Head Coach Paul Turner is aware of the challenge he faces in Dublin on Saturday and in the following two Magners League fixtures next week.
"It will be a tough challenge against the form side in the Magners League this weekend yet, as the squad reflects, we are looking to prepare for the next three league fixtures as best we can.
"The players are aware that I'm asking for a huge performance on the weekend, as I will be in all three fixtures over the seven days."
