The Dragons have retained the same line-up which comprehensively beat the Cowboys last weekend for their Telstra Premiership round 20 clash with the Eels at Parramatta Stadium this Saturday. Dragons coach Nathan Brown has named a bench of six with two to be omitted, depending on how Australian reps Shaun Timmins and Luke Bailey pull-up after the Test against New Zealand just 24 hours earlier. The Dragons, currently in seventh place, beat the Eels 30-28 at WIN Stadium in round two.
