NEWPORT Gwent Dragons fly-half Steffan Jones will pull the strings for Crawshays against Cambridge University tomorrow (kick-off 7pm), writes Chris Kirwan.
The 22-year-old has played the last three games for Cross Keys as he returns to fitness after suffering a dislocated elbow in pre-season. He also featured for a Dragons development side in their win against Oxford University.
His half-back partner will be Luc Jones, son of Dragons director of rugby Lyn Jones and a member of the region's European squad.
The Crawshays have a strong Gwent influence for the clash at Grange Road and will be captained by stalwart Bedwas back row forward Deri Mattravers, who gives some experience to a largely youthful side.
Crawshays: Harley Thomson (Bedwas), Patrick Tapley (Bedford), Ciaron Driscoll (Cross Keys), Cameron Hughes (RGC 1404/Bangor Univ), Kristian Baller (Cross Keys), Steffan Jones (Dragons), Luc Jones (Dragons), Luke Garrett (Dragons Academy), Josh Clark (Blackwood), James Monck (Newport), Joe Davis (Dragons Academy), Jamie Sullivan (Newport), Sean Higgins (Cross Keys), Deri Mattravers (Bedwas, captain), James Benjamin (Dragons Academy). Replacements - Tom Emery (Exmouth), AN Other, Joe Jones (RGC 1404), Pete Kolakowski (Peterborough), Alex Humphries (Crymych/Bristol Univ), Alex Schwartz (RGC 1404), Keiron Meek (Newbridge), Mikiev Stanway (Old Albanians).
