Time to throw it about: Ross Samson.

With the season winding down, Dragons introduced new faces as they went down in a 24-19 home defeat to Dubai Hurricanes last week.

The club say they will do the same again tomorrow and are intent on enjoying their rugby which, combined with Amblers’ record of thrilling attacking rugby since the turn of the year, should make for an entertaining affair.

“After giving a host of players first team debuts over the last few weeks, we will continue to do so this week,” said Dragons director of rugby Paul Hart. “Our strong second team have now finished their season, which allows us to reward a few stand-out players with first team exposure.”

Skipper Ross Samson insists the players are determined to enjoy the remaining few weeks of the season.

“We want to throw the ball around and play some rugby,” said the Scottish scrum-half. “Al Ain will be looking to do the same so it should be a cracker.”

Despite recording one win in 16 games back among the elite, Amblers have entertained, especially in 2016.

“We were happy with our game last week against Abu Dhabi Harlequins. It was a more complete game for us,” said head coach Andrew Rouvi.

“We are looking for a similar performance. We want to get our set-pieces right so we can give our backs good ball to do what they do best, attack and score tries.”

Elsewhere, Hurricanes have been forced to forfeit their trip to Abu Dhabi Saracens due to a shortage of front-row players. Sarries will receive a 20-0 bonus point win.
