    Both sides will go into this one feeling they let the win slip on the opening with the Dragons coming close to turning over Glocuester and Glasgow close to claiming the scalp of former finalists Biarritz.

    If either side could come away with a full haul on Saturday they'll feel they still have a great chance of progressing, especially the Dragons who will welcome Glocuester on the final weekend, confident of turning them over.

    The Dragons may well have the psychological edge going into this one having already picked up the bonus point win when both sides met in the league back a month ago.

    Odd that Fussell isn't starting. Loosing Braman is a huge loss for the Dragon's. Still think they'll take this game at home.

    Do Glasgow really have a prop called John Welsh Welsh? :p
    Should be an interesting match, as tbh, both of these teams stand a chance of qualifying if things go their way.

    I went with good old 20-16. Odd amount of close calls on this one.

    21-16 from me, again close. Sounds like a good performance from the Dragons, they're really starting to click it seems. They really should have gotten the bonus point after scoring three first half tries, but I'm still happy with the win. Great to see the Dragon's performing even without their talasmatic no 8, Joe Bearman. I was worried before the match, that he would be the difference between the teams, but the Dragon's have progressed hugely.
     
  13. Martin Thomas' try was excellent. Haven't seen the others, though. Perhaps we could have had this on the Red Button, so I wouldn't have to rant at the ref with the Blues? Bah, too late now.

    24-22 was my guess. Way off. Well, ish.
