THE Dragons have changed their props for tomorrow’s United Rugby Championship game at the Sharks with first starts of the season for Aki Seiuli and Chris Coleman.

The Rodney Parade club have headed to Durban (kick-off 5.05pm) on the back of a first win of the season against the Ospreys in Newport.

Head coach Dai Flanagan makes four changes, one enforced, to his XV from the 20-5 success with Samoa loosehead Seiuli and tighthead Coleman coming in.

Rhodri Jones and Lloyd Fairbrother drop down to the bench – no doubt mindful of the giant presence of destructive Springboks loosehead Ox Nche in the home dugout.

George Nott came on for lock Ben Carter in the first quarter of the Ospreys and gets the nod in the XV while there is rotation at scrum-half with Dane Blacker starting ahead of Rhodri Williams.

Ollie Griffiths leads the side from openside – Nott is one of club skipper Steff Hughes’ nominated vice-captains but is asked to concentrate on running the lineout – while lock Joe Davies and back rower Harri Keddie are back from injury on the bench.

Dragons: C Evans; Dyer, Tomkinson, Owen, E Rosser; Reed, Blacker; Seiuli, Roberts, Coleman, Screech, Nott, Lonsdale, Griffiths (captain), Wainwright.

Replacements: Benjamin, R Jones, Fairbrother, J Davies, Keddie, R Williams, S Hughes, Hewitt.
