Match Report

Man of the Match Hallam Amos crossed the white wash twice for Dragons at Rodney Parade, Friday night.

Zebre came out fighting against the home side as they gained a penalty, but as they looked to get the first points on the board Luciano Orquera hit the posts and the scores stayed at 0-0.

 

But the Dragons were back on form as they charged closer to the Zebre try line and managed a penalty. 24 year old fly-half Jason Tovey kicked at goal and put the first points on the board for Dragons 0-3.

 

Dragons get another penalty and Tovey keeps his form with another perfect kick over the posts; the Dragons further edging the lead over Zebre.

 

But Zebre answer the points with an attack on the Dragons try line which is just inches away, but Dragons defence is impeccable as they turn the ball over and get it across field. But it ends up in Zebre hands and Dan Evans makes a try saving tackle forcing Zebre out of play.

 

Dragons get another penalty and theres another 3 points on the scoreboard courtesy of Tovey. Dragons lead 9-0

 

The home side make another play for the try line and they are over with Hallam Amos securing the first try of the game with the succcesful conversion from Tovey.

 

HALFTIME Dragons 16 – Zebre 0

 

Wales Under-20 international Amos crossed for his second try after Faletau's superb break; though Sarto grabbed a consolation try for Zebre.

 

Flanker Evans then took advantage of a dominant Dragons scrum to score his side's third try midway through the second half to secure the win and to make it five wins out of five against Italian sides since defeat by Treviso in December.
