Next Gen Series brought to you by **[Macron.](https://www.macron.com/uk/en/)**.\n\n**A quick glance at the Dragons back three these days reveals a plethora of young talent and it’s easy to see why the Dean Ryan revolution at Rodney Parade is gathering pace.**\n\nAcross the positions, the young guns are starting to fire with the likes of Taine Basham and Harrison Keddie stepping things up another level since Ryan came on board. \n\nThe men of Gwent are clearly on an upward trajectory but if one criticism were to be levelled at them this campaign, it’s that they have relied on the, admittedly brilliant, fly-half Sam Davies too much at times. \n\nDavies’ pinpoint left boot steered them to victory time and again but an additional creative spark from the rest of the backline would certainly be a boon as well. \n\nNewly-signed centre Nick Tompkins and winger Jonah Holmes will certainly help in that regard but new backs coach Gordon Ross, who has joined forces with Barry Maddocks, will also be licking his lips at the potential already residing in the back three – perhaps none more so than Will Talbot-Davies.
