Dragons hand 17-year-old scrum-half Dan Babos his first start in Friday's Pro14 game against Ulster at Rodney Parade, with Sarel Pretorius out injured.
Big game for a 17-year-old?
N.B. 17-year-old not! According to the records, he is 19? :D

Dregs might just have had a chance with their first choice team. Without their internationals and with current injuries (Pretorius, Tyler Morgan) it's hard to see how they will pull this off.

Is there really such a thing as a first-choice Dragons team as such? They lose nearly all their matches regardless.

Dragons played 9 lost 7 won 2 points 10

Poor trolling; but yes, there's a big difference between Elliot Dee and Gerard Ellis, Cory Hill and Joe Davies, Ollie Griffiths and Aaron Wainwright, Gavin Henson and Arwel Robson, etc. etc. - I don't think it's any secret that there are only a very few players that are currently any good at the Dragons (and a few more that could become good in time).

Dragons have had a bad draw with a lot of away games. Their opponents have racked up some big scores by playing second choice teams in games they weren't going to win anyway, but the Ospreys (for example) have lost games they should have won. There are a fair few home games coming up for the Dragons now and they should look a bit better with their internationals back.

Dragons don't do themselves any favours by falling off tackles.
And Angus O'Brien is not up to regional standard.
0 - 8 after 12 minutes.

Henson looking slow but good.

The Dragons are fighting like crazy.

Right, time for a cuppa.

Gone.
