Dragons have named a 29-man tour party for the trip to South Africa to face Isuzu Southern Kings and the Toyota Cheetahs in the Guinness PRO14.

Head Coach Ceri Jones and his team will jet out tomorrow (Tuesday) for the tour that will see Dragons kick-off with a fixture against the Kings on Sunday (April 7) at Madibaz Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

Dragons also face Cheetahs at Toyota Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday, April 13.

Back row James Benjamin (neck), Nicky Thomas (calf) and centre Tyler Morgan (shoulder) will miss the tour to continue rehab in Wales alongside Cory Hill, Aaron Jarvis, Brandon Nansen, Ollie Griffiths, Nic Cudd, Arwel Robson, Ashton Hewitt, Harrison Keddie and James Sheekey.

“It’s a very important trip for us and we go over to South Africa looking for positive results,” said Jones.

“The Kings are obviously pretty close to us in the table and the Cheetahs have been strong this season and will be a big challenge away from home.

“We are taking a strong squad on this tour and we want to get results. We are looking forward to getting over there.

“The group of Wales internationals that have come back to us have been away for a period so we have integrated them back in and it is all about getting that squad tight together and getting results.”
