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.

Centre Jack Dixon and No 8 Ieuan Jones both retain their places for the Dragons, who are chasing a third straight win.

Treviso welcome back-row forwards Robert Barbieri and Valerio Bernabo back into the fold, although the Italian outfit have been hit hard by international withdrawals.

Corniel Van Zyl will captain the team while Giovanni Maistri is at hooker. Former Super Rugby standout Doppies La Grange is named at outside centre.
