THE Dragons have named an unchanged XV for their return to action in the Guinness PRO14 at Benetton on Sunday (kick-off 4pm).

The Rodney Parade side stick with the starters from their home loss to unbeaten Munster at the start of the month.

They haven’t played since because of a coronavirus outbreak and director of rugby Dean Ryan, who missed that defeat while isolating at home, only makes changes to his bench.

Lock Joe Maksymiw, a summer signing from Connacht, returns along with wing Jared Rosser, who comes in for Daf Howells and will make his 50th regional appearance if he is called into action.

The Dragons beat Zebre in round two but have been comprehensively beaten by the big three Irish provinces.

Benetton have lost five from five and are aiming to avoid a clean sweep of losses to Welsh opposition.

Dragons: J Lewis; O Jenkins, A Warren, J Roberts, A Hewitt; S Davies, R Williams (captain); B Harris, R Hibbard, L Fairbrother, J Davies, M Screech, B Fry, H Keddie, O Griffiths.

Replacements: E Shipp, C Maguire, A Jarvis, J Maksywmiw, T Basham, T Knoyle, J Dixon, J Rosser.
