WALES stars Aaron Wainwright, Elliot Dee and Leon Brown will be back in black on Sunday to help the Dragons in their bid to snatch a Champions Cup berth.

The Dragons host Edinburgh at Principality Stadium (kick-off 2pm) as they look to bag fourth spot in Conference A of the Guinness PRO14 and a place in Europe’s premier cup competition.

Wainwright slots into the back row at blindside in place of the injured Ollie Griffiths (bicep), while hooker Dee and prop Brown are among the replacements.

The only other change to the XV that started the victory over Glasgow, their rivals for fourth place who host winless Benetton tomorrow, sees Jack Dixon replace Jamie Roberts (knee) in the centre.

As well as Dee and Brown, prop Greg Bateman and fly-half Evan Lloyd come onto the bench as Rhys Lawrence, Josh Reynolds, Chris Coleman and Rio Dyer drop out of the matchday 23 altogether.

The Dragons, currently in fifth, are level on points with fourth-placed Glasgow and need to score more match points than the Scots to leapfrog them in the standings.

Dragons: J Williams; J Holmes, A Owen, J Dixon, A Hewitt; S Davies, G Bertranou; B Harris, R Hibbard, L Fairbrother, J Davies, M Screech, A Wainwright, H Keddie (capt), R Moriarty. Reps: E Dee, G Bateman, L Brown, B Carter, B Fry, R Williams, N Tompkins, E Lloyd.
