Dragons hoping to improve poor away record

Dragons win a line-out at Rodney Parade in the European Rugby Challenge Cup last season against ASM Clermont Auvergne

Dragons have won only two of their last 10 away games in the European Rugby Challenge Cup, but they will be hopeful of improving that disappointing record when they travel to Enisei-STM in Pool 1 on Friday.

The Russian side have lost their last 17 Challenge Cup games, including last week’s Round 1 home match against Worcester Warriors 57-14.

Key facts

  • This will be the fifth time Dragons and Enisei have met in the Challenge Cup. The Russian club won the first encounter in 2016/17, but Dragons have won the last three.
  • Enisei were one of just four sides to make 12 or more offloads in Round 1 with 13, while Dragons made the joint fewest (2) in their 31-17 win over Castres Olympique.
  • Dafydd Howells’ average carry of 46.5 metres for Dragons was the most of any player in Round 1.

Dragons go top of Pool 1 after convincing win over Enisei

Dragons' Dafydd Howells scored a try in the win over Enisei-STM

Dragons stamped their authority on Challenge Cup Pool 1 on Friday afternoon with a comprehensive 49-22 win over Enisei-STM in Krasnodar.

Tries from Bjorn Basson and Jeremy Jordaan gave the Russian side the lead after Dragons went ahead early on through Jordan Williams, but the Welsh region responded to make it 14-14 at the interval with a crucial score from Arwel Robson, who bagged 19 points in the victory.

The second half was dominated by Dragons who piled on points in the closing stages as Ben Fry, Will Talbot-Davies, Ellis Shipp, Daf Howells and finally Tyler Morgan all crossed the whitewash.

Enisei’s Davit Mekshi did score a try of his own on 71 minutes but the hosts were unable to force a fourth bonus point score in the closing stages.

The five points secured by the visitors puts them top of Pool 1 with a maximum 10 points from two matches while Enisei are yet to pick up a point.

In Round 3, Enisei take on Castres Olympique in their final pool stage match in Krasnodar while Dragons travel to Sixways to face Worcester Warriors.
