"I've no doubt that Saturday's match will again be very physical."
"The tackle area is going to be contested very strongly and that's an area we have to make sure we're very good at because the Dragons look to slow the ball down and make sure you haven't got any quick ball to play from."
"That's something we are aware of, so we have to be up for the physical battle that they will bring."
Newport Gwent Dragons ended a three match losing sequence with their 23-11 victory over Glasgow Warriors at Rodney Parade on Sunday and commenting on the game Young added,
"The Dragons were very good, a real workman-like performance on Sunday against Glasgow."
"They pretty much had the game won early on and it was a very professional display."
"We know what to expect so we have to win that battle at the breakdown and when we get our opportunities we need to make sure we take them."
The team to face the Dragons will be announced online at 12.00pm.
