Luke Charteris is set to make his comeback from injury after being named in the Dragons' squad for their game against Munster on Saturday.
The lock has been sidelined since returning from the 2011 World Cup with a wrist injury. And with Wales short of a lock due to Bradley Davies' suspension, if Charteris comes through the Rodney Parade clash unscathed, then he might be thrown straight into the deep end against Italy next week.
Charteris is set to play in France next year after previously confirming that he will depart from the Dragons at the end of the season and another man reportedly on the move is fellow Welsh lock Lou Reed. The Scarlets second-row made his debut against England on Saturday and reports in the Western Mail claim he is on the verge of agreeing a deal to join the Cardiff Blues.
