Team named for final pre-season clash

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

With Rodney Parade unavailable for the game, the Dragons have switched the clash north to Ebbw Vale RFC’s Eugene Cross ground, where it will kick off at 7:30pm.


A number of players make their first start of the summer, including club captain Dylan Hartley, George North, George Pisi and Luther Burrell.


Friday’s game is not being televised, with the only way to follow the action via the club’s Twitter feed, @SaintsRugby.


The Saints have won all three of their pre-season games this summer, and tomorrow night’s game represents the last chance for players to make their mark ahead of next weekend’s Aviva Premiership opener against Gloucester.


Tickets are on sale now for the Cherry and Whites’ visit to Franklin’s Gardens. CLICK HERE to book 24/7, whether you’re online, on a tablet or on a smartphone.
