Youngster Hallam Amos return to the Newport Gwent Dragons' starting line-up to face Mogliano at Rodney Parade for their Amlin Cup Challenge match on Sunday.

The Dragons have made 10 changes in all - five in the backs and five in the forwards - to the starting XV on duty for the 33-0 victory away at Mogliano last weekend, their only win from three attempts in Pool 3.

Amos replaces Tom Prydie at full-back and Daniel Evans takes over from Lewis Robling at stand-off.

Tonderai Chavhanga comes in on the wing, while Patrick Leach and Ashley Smith form a new centre pairing.

Props Owen Evans and Dan Way, lock Robert Sidoli and back-row duo Tom Brown and Lewis Evans bolster the pack.

The Welsh region trail pool leaders London Wasps - who beat Bayonne on Thursday in their round-four fixture - by 10 points with a game in hand.

Italian side Mogliano have lost all three of their matches so far, conceding 163 points in the process.
