WELSH RI­VALS CLASH IN FRIENDLY

Llanelli Star - - RUGBY -

THE Drag­ons will en­ter­tain the Scar­lets in a pre-sea­son Welsh derby in prepa­ra­tion for the forth­com­ing cam­paign.

In a rare twist, two Welsh re­gions will lock horns in a ‘friendly’ as new bosses Dean Ryan (Drag­ons) and Brad Mooar (Scar­lets) get to grips with their squads.

Both teams will be with­out their in­ter­na­tion­als as the game is sched­uled to take place on Septem­ber 14, three days af­ter War­ren Gat­land’s side jet off to the Rugby World Cup.

The two sides last clashed on Judge­ment Day, when the Drag­ons stunned the men from the west in a rip-roaring 34-32 vic­tory at the Prin­ci­pal­ity Sta­dium.

The kick-off time is yet to be con­firmed.

It will be Mooar’s sec­ond glimpse of his new charges af­ter their trip to face English Cham­pi­onship side Jer­sey on Septem­ber 7.
