Leonard and Obrien were very weak replacements.
Pity they came on so early in the game.

Dragons need to strengthen their squad. They are missing a few good squad members.
Replacements have been poor.

You can say what you like about Landman but he certainly adds some grunt to the Dragons pack. Also given some solid support to his front rank.

20 - 18 after 64 minutes. indiscipline by Burgh is costing them from the boot of Henson.

Reffing of the breakdown has been poor and edin have taken advantage, disappointingly the dragons haven't adapted to the ref

O'Brien just fluffed another promising movement.

I just hope the Dragons coach sees what I see. Surely moving Henson from 10 was a HUGE mistake, just to accommodate a guy who can't play anywhere else. It is madness. Sheer bloody idiotic thinking.

The minute Landman is taken off the pack suddenly can't scrum anymore. I rest my case about Landman.

Lots of naivety and a soft underbelly. 35-18, probably will end up over 40, and after 65 minutes it was a two point game.

Disappointing

FT 35 - 18.
One of the most frustrating games I've ever watched.
I hope the coach takes note. You cannot bring in a one trick pony to replace a master.
O'brien is a one trick pony, Henson is a master.
Dragons were looking great until Sam Beard went off, then moving Henson out of ten when he was controlling the game to 12 was stupidity. Absolutely frustrating.

Owain Leonard? I do not want to knock a youngster, but TBQH he was out of his depth.
I do think he has got potential, but at this point in time, Pro 14 is a bit beyond him.
