The Dragons have named an unchanged line-up for their second round 2004 Telstra Premiership clash with the Warriors in Auckland this Saturday.
However Australian prop Luke Bailey will not be playing after being suspended for one week following his early plea this afternoon on a careless tackle charge from the Raiders game on Sunday.
Dragons coach Nathan Brown named the side earlier today and will not be making a decision on final changes until later this week.
