World News – GB – Dragons v Scarlets live updates, team news and live stream details


There is no Guinness PRO14 game this weekend, with the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup finals taking center stage

The two regions therefore took the opportunity to register in a friendly match before the resumption of PRO14 next week

It’s tagged as a Team A match, but that will give a run-out for a number of players who will be used during the international period, with that many star names on trial duty

For the Dragons, former Ospreys center Joe Thomas will have the chance to impress during his trial with the Gwent region, while former Dragons winger Aled Brew will make his first appearance since he joined the Scarlets

The match is being broadcast on the region’s Facebook and YouTube channels – or you can follow the action in our live blog below

Dragons: Dafydd Howells, Owen Jenkins, Joe Thomas, Aneurin Owen, Jared Rosser, Josh Lewis, Luke Baldwin; Conor Maguire, Ellis Shipp, Lloyd Fairbrother, Ben Carter, Joe Maksymiw, Huw Taylor (captain), Ben Fry, Taine Basham

Substitutes: Rhys Lawrence, Josh Reynolds, Chris Coleman, Max Williams, George Young, Dan Babos, Will Reed, Rio Dyer

Scarlets: Tom Prydie, Ryan Conbeer, Tyler Morgan, Paul Asquith, Aled Brew, Angus O’Brien, Dane Blacker; Rob Evans, Marc Jones, Javan Sebastian, Tevita Ratuva, Morgan Jones, Ed Kennedy, Jac Morgan (captain), Uzair Cassiem

Alternates: Taylor Davies, Shaun Evans, Dylan Evans, Kemsley Mathias, Werner Kruger, Harri O’Connor, Jac Price, Tom Phillips, Joe Miles, Dan Davis, Carwyn Tuipulotu, Will Homer, Sam Costelow, Joe Roberts, Ioan Nicholas

All the initial pressure came from the Scarlets, who went through the phases and looked to move the ball away

Rob Evans almost tried his luck on his return, only to lose the ball towards the line

The teams are on the pitch and let’s go, with the kick-off of the Scarlets

There’s a late addition to the Scarlets’ game day squad, with young winger Tom Rogers joining the bench

This means they have no less than 16 standby replacements in reserve, so expect plenty of changes as the game progresses.

Dragons back rower Taine Basham will be a man with a point to prove today that he was overlooked by the Wales fall squad

He was left out of the original selection, then missed again when Josh Macleod was sidelined through injury with James Davies preferred as an opening substitute

Versatile Basham packs his bags at No.8 today and you can expect him to deliver his usual dynamism from the base of the fray

There is a welcome return for Welsh mainstay Rob Evans who is back in action for the Scarlets after neck surgery

But now the 28-year-old is eager to leave, with Scarlets coach Glenn Delaney saying he’s in the best shape he’s ever seen

Here is the full story of the ups and downs Evans went through over the past two years

It’s also a big day for center Joe Thomas as he looks to impress at trial for the Dragons

Grand Slam winner with the U20 Wales, he spent three years with the Ospreys before being released in 2018

He is now trying his hand with the Dragons, where he had previously been loaned

It will be a defining opportunity for Aled Brew today, as he becomes the fourth player to appear for the four Welsh regions

The widely traveled international winger follows in the footsteps of Liam Davies, Tal Selley and Tavis Knoyle as he rounds out the set by lining up for the Scarlets vs. Dragons, where he had three spells

Here is his full story and all other team news ahead of the Rodney Parade game

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the friendly A-Team between the Dragons and the Scarlets

With a number of away internationals, this is a great opportunity for both teams to give some players a few minutes before they cross the gap in the weeks to come.
