Dean Ryan has spoken about his excitement at seeing his new-look Dragons in action this season – as they bid to impress in the United Rugby Championship (URC).
The Men of Gwent kick-off the new campaign against Edinburgh on Saturday, September 17 before welcoming Munster to Rodney Parade on Sunday, September 25.
Dragons RFC continue pre-season preparations on Friday when Wasps play in Newport (kick-off 7pm).
And Ryan is keen to see his new squad shape up and land more punches in the league this campaign.
He said: “I’m looking forward to seeing some new faces and I’m excited to move on. Last year was tough with the amount of change that we went through.
“It was done for the right reasons, and I feel we’re in a good space with some of our experience that we’ve got.
“They have made a positive impact in the group and raised standards. People have responded to those standards.
“In some ways, decisions were made to almost instigate that. Now I just want to see that group go on and work hard to ruffle a few feathers as we get into the URC.
“We can’t hide from the scale of the challenge within the URC, but we want to ruffle a few more feathers than we’ve been able to do in the previous campaigns.”
