Dragons boss Dai Flanagan admits he’s “very glad” the season is over after a 32-15 Judgement Day defeat by Scarlets at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Tries from Kemsley Mathias, Dan Davis and two for Tomi Lewis earned the west Wales region a bonus-point victory and revenge for their 13-12 defeat at Rodney Parade on New Year's Day.

Replacement Sio Tomkinson crossed twice late on in his farewell appearance for the Dragons, but it was not enough to prevent a 15th defeat in 18 United Rugby Championship matches and a 15th-place finish.

“It was exactly how we’ve been all season; we do well for periods, we start pretty decent, move the ball and contain, and then we have a scrum on our own 22 where we’re in full control – penalty, corner, maul, try. Then we’re chasing,” said Flanagan of Mathias’ opener for the Scarlets.

“It’s hard to reflect on one game, because I’m probably reflecting on the last 12 months in my head.

“I’m very glad it’s over. It’s been a tough season; there’s games we should have won, games where we’ve got battered, and today probably summed it up where we had opportunities we didn’t capitalise on.

I’m proud of some things we’ve achieved and really gutted and disappointed in other things.”

Dragons’ No 8 Aaron Wainwright gave Wales head coach Warren Gatland an injury scare when he limped off at half-time and didn’t return for the second half, but Flanagan revealed that the 26-year-old had suffered only a dead leg.
