WALES flanker Aaron Wainwright is the only change to the Dragons XV for the clash with Guinness PRO14 champions Leinster in Newport tomorrow (kick-off 5.15pm).

The 21-year-old from Bassaleg starts at openside at Rodney Parade after coming off the bench to play blindside in the win against South Africa last weekend.

Head coach Bernard Jackman hinted at the start of the week that he would reward the players that earned a 18-12 win against Edinburgh and he has stayed true to his word with his Wales contingent, Wainwright apart, having to settle for bench duty after beating the Springboks.

Hooker Elliot Dee backs up captain Richard Hibbard, Cory Hill is set to come on for Rynard Landman or Lewis Evans after they combined well last week and Ross Moriarty is covering Harri Keddie, Wainwright and Ollie Griffiths.

Samoa lock Brandon Nansen and openside Nic Cudd are the unlucky men to miss out while Tavis Knoyle is preferred to Rhodri Davies on the bench.

Leinster leave a glut of Ireland internationals out ahead of their European double-header with Bath but the province are renowned for their depth and are skippered by Australia lock Scott Fardy.
