Dragons lock Andrew Coombs will lead the region as they take on Heineken semi-finalists Munster on Friday, (Rodney Parade, 7pm). This will be the first time he leads the side at the home of the Dragons this season after wearing the armband for the double header match against the Scarlets and at Ravenhill last weekend.
Dragons back row and Lions hopeful Dan Lydiate will step out on the Rodney Parade field for the final time as he starts for the dragons against Munster alongside welsh star Toby Faletau.
There will also be a chance for fans to say farewell to legendary hooker Steve Jones following the announcement of his retirement through injury. The former international is the most-capped player for the Dragons, having appeared 180 times for the Men of Gwent.
