    Is Tal Selley not good enough for the Dragons now either.
    Gaaaw, there was a time in the early Noughties where I thought he was amazing...

    Ah they signed him off Quins right? I've heard he's pretty good, he played for the Wales u20's in 2008 apparently, so he must be alright.

    Looking forward to this one though :D If the Dragons were full strength I'd tip them for the win, but not sure they can with the amount of injuries they've got. Would be very useful for the Blues to get a win, lets just hope Norton-Knight doesn't have a Mare of a game <_< At least Dai Yoing has finally picked Rees over Cooper.
  9. Yeah, the Blues shirt can sit in the wardrobe tommorow. I'll be proudly wearing that new Dragons shirt I got for Christmas. Sorry, Blues, but that's the way it goes...

    Dragons barely 60 seconds into the game have conceded a penalty.

    Ben Blair steps up...

    looks to miss by a country mile but curls the ball back in and hits the post.
    Dragons escape a lucky punishment.

    Penalty to blues from a scrum right in front of the posts a few metres out.
    Blair doesn't miss this time.

    3-0 to blues

    Jamie Roberts makes a schoolboy error running infront of the kicker and gives dragons a chance to equalise with a penalty.
    But in the words of hte commentator, "Not enough accuracy, not enough power"...only he said that in welsh.

    Still 3-0 to blues

    Aled Brew gets a try after a prop who wasn't good enough to play for the blues, makes a break for the dragons from a ruck and puts brew in for a sprint to the line.


    Blues 3 - 7 Dragons.

    There's something about Sam Norton Knight's face that bugs me...

    A little girl in pink in the crowd was waving at the camera, my dad felt obliged to wave back and say hello.
    I didn't have the heart to tell him she can't hear him...
  16. Is this game only on Welshchannel
  17. RC

    RC Guest

    Yeah, it's on s4c. I think you may be able to get it if you have sky digital (on one of those obscure 900 channels along with the other bbc regional channels)

    Rhys Thomas gets yellow carded after what's been some positive play so far.
    Dragons get penalty close and infront of posts and miss the penalty.

    Really entertaining game so far.

    Still 3-7 Dragons

    Gethyn Jenkins penalised for not binding in the scrum.
    Dragons penalty earns them 3 points.

    Blues 3 - 10 Dragons.
