Bright to lead the team against Dragons

Mark Bright will captain Ealing Trailfinders when they take on a Newport Gwent Dragons Development XV at the CCBC Centre for Sporting Excellence in Ystrad Mynach on Saturday.

Ben Ward’s side travel to Wales aiming to maintain their momentum from their opening 28-7 pre-season victory over Coventry last Saturday, a match in which Bright scored his first try in Ealing Trailfinder’s colours.

Bright will start at number 8 with flankers Willie Ryan and Iain Grieve either side of him in the back-row. 

Further forward the Jones twins Carwyn and Llewelyn pack down in the engine room, with props Will Davis and James Gibbons in the front row with professional academy member Matt Cornish. 

In the backs scrum-half Alex Walker returns to his home town club and will form a starting half-back combination with Jonny Bentley.

Last season’s leading scorer Rhys Crane and Curtis Wilson are on the wings with Aled Jenkins and Joe Munro, another of last week’s try-scorers, in the centres. 

Luke Daniels continues at fullback a week on from scoring a try and three conversions against Coventry.
