Disagree there. If we fast forward five years and the Dragons went bust tomorrow, I'd say no more than a handful would get a pro contract elsewhere in the UK. I don't think any of them would be first choice anywhere else. They're not good enough and no amount of coaching will change that.

Just got up and watched the game, without knowing the score either.

It certainly won't go down in the annals of classic Glasgow victories, but I would say we never looked like losing it either and always seemed to have another gear when we needed it. Third gear, on a few occasions was about as good as we got.

FR was trying to force it a bit to much, Dragons second try came from his mistake and HP had another pretty poor game. He has not played well all season in my opinion and Price has a pretty strong case to be starting at the moment.

I will put it down to the Dragons being tenacious and when they managed to hold onto the ball, occasionally dangerous and us being pretty battered from last weeks titanic encounter with Ulster.

The high light of the game of course had to be the try by our jinky side stepping LH, Alex Allan. He will dine out on that one for the rest of his life!

Dragons will win some games this season if they can tighten up a bit and keep playing with that kind of spirit. RP is rarely an easy place to go and take points and this season is unlikely to be any different.

Young Pipetto and I were laughing ourselves silly, not just at the audacity of Jinxy Allan but at the replay which shows one of the Drag Queens' props begin to chase him but then think "Ah, he's get at least a yard start on me and there's only twenty five yards to the try line; I'll never catch him so I'll just stop now. Save the sprinting energy for later in the game."

I think Glasgow didn't give Dragons enough respect. Instead of going through the forwards and making good yards, they went too quickly to the backs who were pressurised by the organised Dragons defence. I think Glasgow were just focused on the BP and not on the next phase.

Dragons gave away far too many penalties.

Both sides played some good rugby. Harsh on the Dragons not to get anything from this mstch

Ref was rather whistle happy, that and unforced errors ruined any flow to the game.

There was some nice Glasgae fans on the North Terrace - long way to travel for such a poor game.
