Dragons v Treviso - RaboDirect PRO12 match preview
Dan Evans, Jonathan Evans and Lewis Evans return to the Newport Gwent Dragons starting line-up for their RaboDirect PRO12 clash with Treviso at Rodney Parade on Friday.
Prop Nathan Buck is brought into the pack, while fellow front row Phil Price and flanker Nic Cudd earn starts after appearing on the bench in the LV= Cup clash with London Welsh last time out.
