STARTED the season quietly, but was back to his rampaging best in the Rodney Parade win over Edinburgh last weekend. After a spectacular start to international rugby, Faletau has been overshadowed in recent times and was forced to leave the tour of Australia because of a hand injury. The absence of fellow Grand Slammer Dan Lydiate adds even more burden on Faletau's shoulders this evening.

THE full-back had a low-key finale to life as a Scarlet, left in the shadows as Liam Williams starred in the No. 15 jersey. Will return to Llanelli with a major point to prove. Has already found the tryline on four occasions for the Dragons and home fans will be wary about his raking left-foot touchfinders. A big night for the Ammanford man.

ANOTHER seeking a regeneration in the east and another enjoying life at Rodney Parade. The former Osprey showed he posseses a keen eye for goal during the Under-20 World Championships in South Africa in the summer and has continued with a pretty impressive strike rate in the Pro12. Wales's youngest Test cap is playing with far more confidence these days.

THE Swansea-born lock was capped twice by Wales in 2006 after impressing in Scarlets colours. Jones, now 32, has been a Dragon for the past five years and is an experienced line-out forward with good hands and a strong appetite for work. Will look to disrupt the Scarlets' inexperienced second-row pairing this evening.

A FEW weeks ago Cudd was part of Llanelli RFC's squad looking to make his mark again after a major knee injury that kept him sidelined for most of last season. After answering an SOS from the Dragons to help ease their injury crisis, the blond-haired openside is handed his big chance against his former team-mates. A tenacious presence at the breakdown.
