ALL four touring Dragons have been selected for Wales’ Test against South Africa in Washington on Saturday.

Lock Cory Hill misses out on the captaincy to Ellis Jenkins but will still have a big leadership role in an XV that also features his Rodney Parade teammates Elliot Dee and Hallam Amos at hooker and full-back respectively.

Back row forward Aaron Wainwright is set to cap a remarkable season by making his Test bow from the bench against the Springboks (kick-off 10pm).

Hill was chosen as co-captain for the tour, which also features two Tests in Argentina, but it is Cardiff Blues flanker Jenkins that becomes the 135th man to lead Wales.

The Dragons man has played in all nine Tests this season and partners Bradley Davies in the boilerhouse.

Dee makes his second international start in the absence of rested Lions ace Ken Owens, with props Nicky Smith and Dillon Lewis either side of him, while Amos plays at his favoured full-back, where he has started just once in 15 Test outings.

George North is selected in midfield alongside Owen Watkin with former Dragons wing Tom Prydie and Scarlets speedster joining Amos in the back three.

Tomos Williams makes his debut at scrum-half with Gareth Anscombe pulling the strings.

Wainwright backs up the back row trio of Jenkins, Seb Davies and Dragons-bound number eight Ross Moriarty after a stunning season – the strong-running 20-year-old from Bassaleg only made his professional debut in October but went on to become a mainstay of the Rodney Parade region’s pack.

The Dragons quartet match the autumn feat when Hill, Amos and tighthead Leon Brown were named in the XV that tackled Georgia with hooker Dee coming off the bench.

There are a number of occasions when four Dragons have taken to the field with Wales, most notably in the World Cup third-place play-off against Australia in 2011 when number eight Taulupe Faletau, blindside Dan Lydiate and lock Luke Charteris started and hooker Lloyd Burns was a replacement.

Five players were involved twice in the autumn of 2005 – full-back Kevin Morgan, fly-half Ceri Sweeney, scrum-half Gareth Cooper, Charteris and number eight Michael Owen played in the 41-3 thumping at the hands of New Zealand and nervy 11-10 win against Fiji.

A quintet also played against Romania in Wrexham in 2003 when wing Nathan Brew, centre Andy Marinos and lock Ian Gough were in the XV with hooker Paul Young and prop Chris Anthony coming off the bench at the Racecourse.

However, the record is six with the last occasion in the 2005 win against Italy in Rome on the way to a Grand Slam when wing Hal Luscombe and Owen started with Morgan, Sweeney, Cooper and Gough among the replacements.

That tally matched the November, 2004 encounter with Japan in Cardiff when Luscombe, Sweeney, Cooper, Owen and Morgan were joined in the 23 by hooker Steve Jones.

Two weeks before that Luscombe, Charteris, Owen, Sweeney, Cooper and Jones played in the 66-7 success against Romania.

Wales: Hallam Amos; Tom Prydie, George North, Owen Watkin, Steff Evans; Gareth Anscombe, Tomos Williams; Nicky Smith, Elliot Dee, Dillon Lewis; Cory Hill, Bradley Davies; Seb Davies, Ellis Jenkins (captain), Ross Moriarty.

Replacements: Ryan Elias, Wyn Jones, Rhodri Jones, Adam Beard, Aaron Wainwright, Aled Davies, Rhys Patchell/Gareth Davies, Hadleigh Parkes.
