Dragons v Glasgow Warriors
Saturday 26th October
Rodney Parade
Newport

KO 15.00

Live on Premier Sports


So after a week off, the Pro 14 games get going again.

Glasgow finally got a win under their belt against the Blues, but made pretty hard work of it after a promising start. Dragons took a bit of a bashing against Connacht at home at the same time, so you would have to say that this is a game that Glasgow would fancy doing well in, even though we have not always performed at our best down in Newport.

Are we likely to see any players back from the WC squads for this one?

Unlikely to see any Scotland players, most of whom seem to be on holiday going from their Social Media accounts but we could see some of our players from other nations, Fiji, Tonga and Canada in particular making an earlier comeback, either way, our squad should start to pick up from here onwards in the seasona and we will very much be targetting these next three games to get us up the league and back into contention.


Maybe we might see a team something along the lines of:

1. Keeble - if fit
2, Stewart
3. Nicol - did well enough to merit another start
4. Harley
5. McDonald - may have been our best forward against Blues
6. Fagerson M
7. Gibbins
8. Ashe - if fit
9. Dobie - probably deserves a start and this might be the match for it
10. Thompson
11. Nairn
12. McDowell
13. Grigg
14. Steyn
15. Jones H - surely this is the match to give this a shot

Subs:

Thornton - worth another crack
Dolokoto
Nuke
Davidson
Fusaro
Niko
Jacko - Struggling for FH cover
DTH

And right on cue, weather turns.

Glasgow just need to keep the ball and we'll eventually crumble, but score a nice consolation try at some point.

I see the Dragons are marketing the game as something like Gwent Steel v Irn Bru, via the email I just got.

Dragons at least have Brok Harris and Ollie Griffiths fit again, to probably start 1 and 6 for us. I am sure Glasgow will have seen the template from the Munster and Connacht defeats and beat us up. Hopefully we perform a little better than the Connacht game.

Glasgow fans will have to forgive my lack of enthusiasm for this. It’s so hard getting up for any game as a Dragons fan. Pretty much every week I check the fixture and shrug my shoulders and mutter ‘ffs’. On Saturday I’d say there’s a very small chance of a Dragons win, a very good chance of a Dragons loss and a pretty good chance of Dragons being thumped! Rinse, repeat. It’s a never ending nightmare. It’s one of the negative sides of not having relegation in the league. At least with relegation the team going down gets to be the big fish in the little pool for a while! But without it we’re sort of held captive in a pool of sharks with everyone taking a nibble each week Sad

Just praying for a close game this weekend. Actually, didn’t we draw this fixture last year? Yeah, maybe....... hmmmm.

Damn, that’s got me thinking now and my hopes are up!

We could win this! F*** yeah!

We’ll batter ‘em!

And then just like that my hopes will be dashed and we’ll turn in an abject performance in the rain and mud of a wet and gloomy Rodney Parade Sad

It’s the hope that kills you Sad

I feel for Dragons fans, I’d love to see them emulate something similar to Connacht. The WRU should really give them a better chunk of funding for one or two seasons. Their fans always seem pretty fired up at Rodney Parade though and hopefully this season will be an improvement with Dean Ryan at the club.

Glasgow side is put;


Kebble
Stewart
Nicol
Harley
McDonald
Ashe
Gibbins
Fagerson
Frisby Why?
Thomson
Matawalu
McDowall
Grigg
Steyn
Bryce

Allan
Matthews
Rae
Davidson
Fusaro
Dobie
Jones
Jackson

I've pulled this from the Glasgow supporters forum, not sure if that's the Selkirk Pixie or Not A Pony on the bench. probably the latter. Glen Bryce in ahead of Rhubarb  Shocked Glad to see Nicol get another start, he looks a real prospect. D'Arcy Rae was in great form towards the end of last season but didn't make the 23 for the final and seems to be taking his time to get up to speed this season; possibly he and DR not seeing eye to eye? Mind you that is a very tasty back row we have out.

as ever BigGee has done a better job of listing the team than I have. Hug

Not a bad looking team. Good to see McDonald rewarded for his good form and to hold onto his place.

Nicol gets another crack as well, which suggests he might be edging ahead of Rae in the pecking order.

Still got Frisbee starting at SH and looks like they don't want to start Dobie just yet, which is probably understandable. Looks like we are stuck with him until Price and Horne get back.

Niko comes straight back in on the wing, which does not look like a great vote of confidence for any of the other squad wingers.

Huw Jones dropped for Nick Grigg again. Automatic 3 match ban for Jones for behaviour that is detrimental to the image of Scottish rugby. No right to appeal.

Glasgow have only managed one dry game this season so far and that was in Bloemfontein which has its own issues!

Dies nothing to help our game unfortunately

What an awful half of rugby by both teams

Can't complain about the Dragons lead but neither team look like they want to score a try. It is a long time since I have seen Glasgow play as badly as this though, Dragons should take their chance, we are very beatable today.

Could Glasgow's season be over before it gets started? If they lose this it's 1 win out of 4 and falling well behind the top teams in the pool.

Bet that Australia job is looking pretty appealing!

I think you might be right, it is not that we are losing, but it is the way we are losing. With all respect to the Drags, who are definitely playing better than we are, we have gifted them everything they have got today.

Maybe we just have to reset our goals this year and think about euro qualification and that won't be easy from here!

We have looked better with Dobie and Jones on the pitch though, wonder why DR has not worked that one out yet?

Sums up our match

Had Aldi Price of Hornito been on the pitch there would have been someone on his shoulder to take that off load: however it was Frisby who decided the best line was to sprint down the wing away from the defenders but also the ball.

Avery bad day at the office, for both half backs. Huw Jones looked very good when he came on, as did Fozzy. Otherwise a pretty poor showing.

Horne and Hastings return will make a huge difference on their own! That pack really needs a lot of work though.

What's happened to Gibbens btw? After a good first season he's been pretty meh since. Who was it that said he was better than Hamish Watson again? Laugh

and Huw Jones eventually gets a score.

Why won't DR pick him, it just seems to make no sense whatsoever!

Gibbins has been poor in every game this season and yet he keeps getting picked, why not try one of the young guns, Smith or Gordon. You do question DR selections, despite missing all these players, we can surely put out a much better performance than that. That is three howlers now and a narrow win and yet no-one seems to be paying the price for it!

All very strange!
