"Brutal" Ross Moriarty And "Sharp" Aaron Wainwright Ready For Wales Call, Says Dragons Chief

Dean Ryan has admitted he will have mixed feelings if Wales come calling again for his Dragons back row pair of Aaron Wainwright and Ross Moriarty. The dynamic duo were at the heart of the Dragons’ impressive 31-20 victory over the Ospreys in Bridgend that has dented the losers’ Heineken Champions Cup prospects and given Ryan’s men an outside sniff of qualification. It was the Dragons’ first win of 2021 and Wainwright – released for some game time by Wales coach Wayne Pivac – weighed in with a try to add to doubles from Jonah Holmes and Ashton Hewitt to give the visitors a bonus point victory.

Former Cardiff City And Swansea Defender Jazz Richards Signs For Haverfordwest County

Steve Cooper has insisted he works for a “classy club” after refusing to get involved in a war of words with Neil Warnock.

Dragons Centurion Ashton Hewitt Stands Between Ospreys And Gate To Europe

The Ospreys could take a giant step towards Heineken Champions Cup rugby next season if they can complete the double over regional rivals the Dragons at the Brewery Field tonight. The top three teams in the two Guinness PRO14 Conferences qualify automatically for the top tournament in Europe and Toby Booth’s much-improved side are currently on 31 points with three games to play – the Dragons at home and then Leinster and Glasgow Warriors away. If they can beat the Dragons with a bonus point to reach 36 points then they will be guaranteed third place. If not, they will need to pull some points out of the bag on their final two away trips.

Swansea City's Connor Roberts Is The Crynant Cafu Whose Battery Never Goes Flat

Swansea City’s promotion push is being driven along the hard yards by Connor Roberts, the man the fans have nicknamed the Crynant Cafu. Roberts may not yet have hit the heights of the most capped Brazillian player of all time, but his energy levels seem to be sourced from the same type of internal battery pack. The Swans and Wales wing-back is proving the dynamo driving his team’s promotion surge, but it is anything but a stroll in the park.
