Dragons v Zebre
This live event has finished
- The Dragons are hunting for a third home win of the season when they take on Zebre in the RaboDirect Pro12 this evening.
- Lyn Jones' side have beaten Ulster and the Scarlets to make a promising start to the campaign.
- Victory this evening would lift them above the Scarlets, who host Glasgow tomorrow, into the top half of the table.
Final whistle, Dragons have to settle for four points. Final score 30-7.
Dragons five metres out going for the BP score...
Richie Rees scores try number three after the Dragons' scrum powers forward. 30-7 after 64 mins
Try for Leonardo Sarto in the corner. Orquera adds the extras for 23-7 after an hour.
Wonderful, wonderful Dragons try. Toby breaks off the back of a scrum on halfway and ships on to Tovey, who is dragged down but offloads to Amos. Marvellous score in the left corner. And Tovey adds the extras for 23-0. Game over, now try for the BP.
Right, we're back under way. Will Harries is on for Jack Dixon.
Tovey adds the extras and it's 16-0 at half-time.
Try for Amos! Zebre make a hash of the ball from the base of a scrum and Talei feeds young wing Hallam. A gift.
Dragons unable to build a head of steam because of the awful refereeing. But Tovey makes it 9-0. Frustrating half.
Apologies for the lack of updates so far, the wifi went down! Any way, the Dragons are 6-0 up courtesy of a pair of Tovey penalties. 30 minutes gone.
