I like the look of this team. Good to see the lesser spotted Angus getting a run.

I am looking forward to watching them play at home and seeing how Nightingale, Garrett and Matthews get on. If I remember correctly, Matthews is a very good player but perhaps not fit enough to be a pro at this point?

It is also good to see Richie Cornock get tested at this level.

Don't think there's anything wrong with Matthews personally. Has a bit of a Steffan Armitage look about him granted, but I'd still prefer him over Benjamin.

With the way Phil Price is going, hopefully Garrett will be given a chance with the seniors soon.

That's a handy team. Plenty of talent coming through. I'd forgotten all about Barney Nightingale.

I'm more excited by that XV than I am by the full Dragons XV for the Sale game (with a few exceptions). Some of these players should be given a shot.

I take it these aren't covered by the season ticket?

A Warren on the wing is Aaron Warren, the younger brother of Adam the centre. Apparently on loan to the Dragons (not sure how long for). But I would say he will be out to prove his worth, a solid, and nippy winger.

Fair play that is a strong side though. Good to see this comp is being taken seriously

I think they are. Well that is what I have been told, but I will check with the Dragons direct.

Even if they are not it shouldnt be more than £5

Pretty gutted this isn't covered by the season ticket. I would've loved to go to these, but I don't really want to pay premiership prices.

I'm not surprised. I believe they should be included in ours too, considering we've lost the LV.

24-0 to Dragons Premiership Select off the last update. Tries for Adam Jones, Super Luc and a pen try. Quality

Can we buy a season ticket JUST for the premiership select matches? Wink

Good win. I know that's the former Wales U20 back-row but I never thought much of them. Good to know Garrett and Cornock are getting game time at a high level.

Buy a season ticket at each club the Drags A side visit on the road and the BIC games will all be included I reckon.
