Following defeats to Cardiff Blues and the Scarlets, the Dragons go in search of their first win of the Welsh derby season as they entertain the Ospreys at Rodney Parade.

They welcome back Wales and Lions centre Jamie Roberts from Covid-19 self-isolation, but flanker Taine Basham (broken arm) and back three man Jonah Holmes (concussion) are ruled out.

For the Ospreys, who beat the Blues on New Year’s Day, fit-again wing Keelan Giles is set for his first appearance in nearly 15 months having being named as a replacement.

They rest international back rowers Justin Tipuric and Dan Lydiate, with Stephen Myler captaining the side from outside-half.

The game is being broadcast live on Premier Sports, but if you can’t get in front of a TV you can follow all the action via our live blog.
