Amlin Challenge Cup Newport Gwent Dragons drawn with Wasps

Dragons scrum-half playing against Wasps

Newport Gwent Dragons have been drawn against London Wasps in the Amlin Dhallenge Cup draw.

The Welsh region have also joined in Pool 3 by French club Bayonne and Rugby Mogliano from Italy.

The Dragons will be hoping to go better than their three wins and three losses in last year's pool stage.

London Welsh will replace Newcastle in the draw if they win their appeal to the Rugby Football Union over reaching Avia Premiership criteria.
