Treviso v Dragons: RaboDirect PRO12 match preview
The Dragons have named just one change to their squad for their RaboDirect PRO12 clash at Treviso on Saturday.
Jonathan Evans is selected to start at scrum-half, with Wayne Evans taking his place on the bench, the former returning to the starting line-up having previously been selected for the majority of this season's games.
Following on from a solid cup performance against Northampton and a win at home against Connacht, consistency is then reserved within the rest of the Dragons side.
Treviso have named a strong front row with Alberto De Marchi and Leonardo Ghiraldini starting.
Having won three of the four previous RaboDirect PRO12 matches they have played against the Dragons, Treviso will want to ensure the successful run continues this weekend.
Captain Antonio Pavanello and Corniel Van Zyl are back as first-choice locks with Manoa Vosawai, Simone Favaro and Alessandro Zanni the preferred back row.
Starting at fly-half is Alberto Di Bernardo, meaning he forms a partnership with experienced scrum-half Edoardo Gori who returns from international duty with Italy.
Christian Loamanu and Alberto Sgarbi start in midfield and the back three sees Luke McLean joining fellow wing Ludovico Nitoglia and full-back Brendan Williams.
