Scarlets forwards coach Danny Wilson has stated that his team will target the Dragons set-piece when they meet this weekend.
Wilson was pleased to see the Scarlets take apart Treviso at scrum-time in the 26-10 victory last weekend.
Now looking to target a perceived weakness of the Dragons when they meet in Round Three of the new RaboDirect Pro12 season, Wilson is hoping the Scarlets can replicate their prowess at the scrum at Rodney Parade.
The Dragons have made a bright start however under new head coach Lyn Jones, narrowly losing to Edinburgh away whilst also defeating Ulster at home.
"We will need to try and put down a marker at the set-piece, as we have in our last two games," Wilson told WalesOnline.
"We know they are an improved side, as we've seen so far this season, and it would be great to get a win if we can.
"It will be a big night. The Dragons have come off the back of two good performances and are an improved side.
"There will definitely be a passionate crowd there and it will be great to have a Welsh derby early on in the season and for me personally to return to Rodney Parade and catch up with some old friends."
