Llanelli 35 - Newport 11. Lovely score going into a game against Munster next week. Hopefully this won't effect Newports game against Brive.
I think Magners league form is irrelevant when it comes to Europe, same for any league form to be honest, the standard is so far above what the teams are used to, the Dragons and Munster are proof of this, having mediocre seasons in the league yet still in contention in their respective European competitions.
