Update: 12:37PM THE Scarlets have suffered another early-season injury setback with prop Deacon Manu breaking a bone in his arm in the win over Treviso.
The experienced Fijian international picked up the injury late on in the 26-10 victory with X-rays later revealing a fracture.
The Scarlets are set to give a full prognosis on the injury at their press conference at Parcy Scarlets today.
Head coach Simon Easterby does at least have plenty of options at tight-head with Lee having enjoyed an impressive start to the season,
South African Jacobie Adriaanse offering another powerful scrummaging option, while Wales international Rhodri Jones has been playing in the No. 3 jersey for Llanelli RFC in the opening weeks of the season.
Manu joins a Scarlets injury list that currently includes centre Gareth Maule (knee) and wing Kristian Phillips (hand), while scrum-half Rhodri Williams missed last weekend's game because of a slight shoulder problem.
The Manu injury was one of the few negatives to emerge from the encouraging 26-10 victory over the Italian side.
"The Leinster defeat could have been a bit of a monkey on our back," admitted skipper Rob McCusker.
"But the first thing the coaches did when we came in on the Monday morning was show us some of the good stuff we did in the first half against Leinster, which was a positive and that set the tone for the week.
"We didn't press any alarm buttons and just had a bit of maturity about it and I thought we managed the game a lot better against Treviso.
"It is all about getting the wins at this stage of the season and it will give us some momentum going to Rodney Parade on Friday night."
As for the Dragons, openside flanker Nic Cudd is unlikely to feature against his former side. Cudd picked up an injury to his shoulder early on in the 16-13 defeat to Edinburgh last Friday and is a major doubt.
