THE Dragons return to action in the Guinness PRO14 has been given the green light after the region had no new positive coronavirus tests.

New signing Jamie Roberts tested positive last week, leaving the region sweating on Sunday’s fixture against the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium.

However, the centre remains the Dragons’ sole positive test so far, meaning that Dean Ryan’s men will return to the field for the first time since March on Sunday (kick-off 2.15pm).

The Ospreys as well as Cardiff Blues and the Scarlets, who meet in Llanelli on Saturday, also got the all-clear in the Welsh Rugby Union’s latest batch of testing.

"Welsh Rugby has conducted a further 288 tests this week, taking the total to 1,665. There have been no additional positive tests recorded at this point," read a WRU statement.

The Dragons put in a raft of measures to try and prevent the spread of coronavirus at their Ystrad Mynach base when they returned to training in July.

Roberts is in good health but is isolating at his Cardiff home and was not tested this week.

The Argus understands that players who worked closely alongside him were also placed in isolation as a precaution before receiving their test results.

The squad returned to training today after a day off yesterday with director of rugby Ryan naming his team for the Swansea fixture at midday tomorrow.
