NORTH Beriwck rugby aces Lewis Carmichael and Chris Dean have retained their places in the Edinburgh side for their Pro14 clash with Dragons this evening (Friday).

Lock Carmichael will hope to emulate his try-scoring exploits from last week - his second-half score in Belfast helped Richard Cockerill's men record an 18-17 win.

He again links up with captain Fraser McKenzie in the second row, while fellow North Berwick man Chris Dean keeps the number 12 jersey. 

He partnered Mark Bennett in the midfield a week ago, but the Scotland cap sits out this week's game, with James Johnstone recalled at outside centre.

Victory over Ulster put Edinburgh into third place in Conference B - the final play-off spot - and a win over the Dragons in Ebbw Vale would consolodate that position.
