The junior Dragons have been making the most of the first-class facilities on offer at Aldershot as they prepare to compete at the World Rugby U20 championship in Tbilisi, Georgia, later in the month, where they face England, Australia and Samoa.

Jason Strange, the team's head coach, decided to take up an invitation from the Army Rugby Union to put his young charges through their paces away from the pressure of the passionate supporters back home.

The programme of events also featured members of the Scots Guards, whose Dismounted Close Combat Trainer gave the Welshmen a taste of military hardware.
