I can't comment about the Kings except to say that they have a potent back three.
As regards the Dragons, this must be about the best side, on paper, that they have put together this season.
I hope they play well and gain some confidence.

Hmm, I wonder if the Dragons could benefit from Wasps to have a few of their players on loan with a view to a permanent switch later.

Glad to see Leon Brown being established as first choice tighthead at the region. He was excellent at U20 level and has real potential for the future; playing week-in week-out at this level is exactly what he needs to improve. The national side is desperately short of quality at tighthead; Lee and Francis are average and below them is nothing but proven mediocrity and unproven youth.

Leon must have some potential, he is a Wales under-20 international. In August 2016 Brown was selected for the senior Wales training squad ahead of the Autumn international series.
Interested to see how he shapes up against the Kings.

Leon is up against a seasoned journeyman in Schalk Ferreira age 33 who has also represented the Boks in the junior ranks. It is not going to be an easy ride for him, but the experience, invaluable.

Not a bad game so far. Henson is still class.

How many more matches do you predict he'll survive uninjured?

Maul goes over from a front throw to the line out. Good play Dragons.
