WING Oli Andrew scored a double as the Dragons Under-18s won at RGC in the WRU Regional Age Grade Championship.

The region, who started the defence of their title with one win and two defeats in August and September, started swiftly in Colwyn Bay.

Wing Andrew scored after just four minutes before, with RGC down to 14 men after a yellow card to fly half Carwyn Jones, a second score from centre Oliver Andrews opened up a 14-0 lead.

RGC hit back as the half wore on with tries from prop Christian Hone and Number Eight Tomos Parry.

A number of Dragons were on a high after Coleg Gwent's success in the final of the WRU Schools & Colleges League, when they edged out Coleg y Cymoedd in a thriller at Sardis Road.

Two of that team helped secured a 26-12 half-time lead with speedster Carrick McDonough scoring a try just after the half hour before fly-half Joe Westwood, whose kicking secured the spoils for Coleg Gwent in Pontypridd, converted his own try.

Andrew grabbed his second score after the break and although home back row Dafydd Thirsk and full back Dafydd Williams crossed the whitewash a late penalty from Westwood wrapped up the win.

The Dragons have four more games in the tournament over the next month with a trip to Cardiff Blues, who are top of the table with three wins from four, next week.

They then enjoy home advantage in Ystrad Mynach against the Ospreys, Scarlets and RGC.

The Blues lead the way on 15 points, the Scarlets are second on 13 with the Ospreys and Dragons both on 10 and RGC propping up the pile with two consolation bonuses.
