Dragons might give ospreys some problems but expect an osprey win. Their performances have been better than results suggest recently

It is difficult to visualise a Dragons victory. However, I somehow don't think they are going to read the script. :D

I agree. Despite this unprecedented losing streak, they haven't always been playing that badly. They cannot be that terrible in order to run Scarlets, Clermont and especially Saracens so close in consecutive weeks.

Those look like pretty decent teams, should be a good game.

O's seem to have more power to fall back on if playing does not bring results. I dont know if I want the O's to win because they need the points, or the Drags to win because they need , erm, the win.

I think Osps will win well, Drags may show up well early as they often do ....but I have Osps to win by 12 to 14 pts

I think it will be competitive for the first 50/60 minutes when the benches are brought into play.

Lots of open play, mostly not threatening the try line

Ref to Biggar “ Dan, Dan, yours is the only voice I ca hear”
International refs won’t put up with his constant whinging and bobbing off.

Ospreys to score soon, but oh so bloody boring ! Credit to the paying fans who’ve bothered to turn up.

Finally, after 23 mins of almost total possession Osps get a try.

Commentators applaud Drags defence (130 tackles)...I criticise Osps unimaginative attack!
