    Connacht looking absolutely lethal at the moment. Will probably score a couple of tries at least so we’ll need to get our act together in attack ourselves. Good chance Farrell will be back for it, which will help.

      Still to prove they have the consistency to get the results required for a home semi. Connacht are serious contenders as well and a win there following up on today would be a serious marker.

      ....and without counting any chickens a Munster v Leinster final in Patkhead would be some occasion.
      I agree Munster have the 2nd best squad but I feel this is more due to the decline of Glasgow and Scarlets than we've improved.

      What struck me the last few games is that our defense has improved up to Leinster's level. It's just our attack that needs to improve.

        I agree, and two comments: building a strong attack from a good defence is a perfectly reasonable thing to do (and gets more success a long the way)- Andy this is probabably what is being done, secondly, Scannell is pivotal to the defence, but as we saw from his cross kick yesterday- has the vision and skill set (speed aside?) to be pivotal in attack too, with a running OH like we now have.

          Rory looks very bulky these days. Not sure he should be that heavy. I know he trucks it up a bit but he will definitely have lost some pace and foot speed carrying those extra kilos.

            Great win for Dragons against Ospreys- 23-22, anyone thinking of heading to Rodney Parafe in a few weeks?

              Serious chance that Benetton could be in 2nd after next week if they beat Glasgow and Ulster beaten by Leinster.

              Apart from Conor OShea, whod have thought....

                Was the Dragons 1st derby win in 24 games. Last win was 4 years ago!

                    And a win for us would put us too, and absolutely in the box seat...wheels came off for Glasgow last year- are we seeing the same again??

                      Scarlets have ran out of fit backrow players. 6 injured. Ken Owens starting at no 8 v the Dragons.

                          Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"
