Well played Dragons, thoroughly deserved victory. Leinster continue to be unable to score from 5 meters out.

Very happy with that. Made my night shift a bit easier.

Great defence second half. Was still worried that Leinster were going to pinch it till Tovey kicked the last penalty. Nice full house for him again (after Pau) and a nice try saving tackle again.

Was impressed by Crosswell too, considering Lyp hasn't been using him for a while. I thought Nugget was going to give the MOTM to Hill, who did well to step in for Lewis Evans.

Wasn't too convinced that Pretorious knocked on either for our disallowed try.

They might not be first choice when Dixon and Morgan come back, but Adam Warren and Adam Hughes work so hard for the team, especially in defence. They're not the biggest either of them, but they throw themselves into tackles.

Different opponents, I know, but I hope everyone who was pillorying the Dragons for their performance against Sale and doubting the players' commitment was watching last night, especially that second-half defensive display.

Another disappointing night for Leinster (missing buckets of starters). They are doing much better in getting themselves into positions to score try's just have to learn to be more clinical, that will come. Cullen is not doing a bad job and I expect Leinster to be a more settled team next season.

Traveled home yesterday and with the weather was thinking what a rubbish weekend to choose to come back but despite the atrocious conditions (was a very wet n soggy drive back to Ebbw) it was a great night last night and fair play both sides tried to play some rugby.

We had a decent couple of chances in the first half but we don't like doing things the easy way and like me a lot of fans around me thought we were going to throw it away in the last 10-15 minutes but out defence was outstanding.

Off to watch Ebbw take on table toppers Llandovery this afternoon and with all other teams above us playing away a nice win could see us climb bit further up than 6th.

Great win Dragons C,Mon Ebbw

I have always been a fan of Adam Hughes, but have been very impressed by Adam Warren too. He is such a solid player for us.

We did indeed and whilst I am a little fluffy this morning and won't be driving home anytime soon it was a great day after a great night on Friday.

In fact the game was a bit like Fridays, both teams tried to play a bit of rugby but Llandovery had a lot of the early pressure yet our defence was outstanding at times and we took our chances when we had them.

The win now moves us up into 4th, 3 pts behind 2nd and 3rd and 5 behind table tappers Aberavon. I still find it strange trying to get use to the new scoring system that is in place but main thing is the W at the end of the game.
