Yep sensible changes but won't be enough

A 4 and a 9 must be top of the shopping list

Tackling by some of the Dragons players are pretty poor.
Morgan at 13 is one I have noticed.

13-6 poor play by Dragons scrum half and then the tackling let them down again.

Since O'brien has come on the Dragons have lost their shape.

The ref has been pretty poor, but he got that yellow spot on.

If you're watching in alba, the commentators are *fupping* terrible, you can tell where Nichol gets it from

I'm sorry but Dragons need a better back up than O'Brien. He has been guilty of quite a lot of errors. He is a very poor link man. From the sublime, Henson, to the ridiculous O'Brien.

HT. 13 - 9 Dragons have definite weak spots which they are going to have to do something about.
I'm very disappointed in Tyler Morgan.

I am quite impressed with the Dragons forwards and the cover defense they provide.

Terrible, terrible tackling by Dragons. How are they going to beef up their back line?
20-9 could be a long second half.
Why did they move Henson to 12 when O'Brien came on? Madness!
