WALES flanker Ross Moriarty is back from injury to captain the Dragons in their United Rugby Championship clash with the Stormers at Rodney Parade tomorrow evening (kick-off 7.35pm)

The blindside missed last week's stunning 35-22 win against Connacht, the region's first win in Galway since 2004.

Director of rugby Dean Ryan makes three changes to his winning XV for the six-day turnaround, while he has also named six forwards on the bench to combat the hefty South African threat.

Moriarty is back to form a back row with Taine Basham and Aaron Wainwright, a trio that could well face New Zealand in the autumn series opener. He replaces Harrison Keddie, who was forced off at the end of the first half in Galway.

Argentina scrum-half Gonzalo Bertranou, who made a swift return from Test duty off the bench in Galway, gets the nod while Ben Carter is back to partner Wales lock Will Rowlands in the second row.

Ryan names two locks, Joe Makysmiw and Joe Davies, on his bench along with fit-again back rower Ollie Griffiths. Scrum-half Rhodri Williams and fly-half/full-back Josh Lewis provide cover for the backs.

Dragons: J Williams; J Holmes, J Dixon, A Owen, J Olowofela; S Davies, G Bertranou; G Bateman, E Dee, M Doge, W Rowlands, B Carter, R Moriarty (captain), T Basham, A Wainwright.

Replacements: T Davies, A Seiuli, C Coleman, J Davies, J Maksymiw, O Griffiths, R Williams, J Lewis.
