WALES wing Hallam Amos returns to the Newport Gwent Dragons starting line-up for tomorrow’s RaboDirect Pro12 clash with Edinburgh at Rodney Parade (kick-off 6.30pm).

The 19-year-old, who was capped against Tonga last autumn, made his return from an ankle injury off the bench in last weekend’s 25-25 draw with Zebre.

He is joined in the three-quarters by fellow 19-year-old Jack Dixon, who slots into midfield alongside Pat Leach after Ashley Smith suffered a foot injury while scoring a try in Parma.

Director of rugby Lyn Jones plumps for the same starting pack but loosehead Owen Evans returns on the bench at the expense of Nathan Buck with Bruce Douglas providing cover for Duncan Bell rather than Phil Price this weekend.

Dragons: D Evans, T Prydie, P Leach, J Dixon, H Amos, J Tovey, R Rees, P Price, E Dee, D Bell, A Coombs (captain), M Screech, L Evans, N Cudd, T Faletau. Replacements: S Parry, O Evans, B Douglas, C Hill, J Groves, W Evans, R Wardle, W Harries.

Edinburgh: J Cuthbert, S Hidalgo-Clyne, M Scott, A Strauss, T Brown, H Leonard, G Hart, A Dickinson, R Ford, W Nel, G Gilchrist, I van der Westhuizen, M Coman (captain), C du Preez, D Denton. Replacements: J Hilterbrand, W Blaauw, S Berghan, O Atkins, R Grant, S Kennedy, C Bezuidenhout, S Beard
