Gwent Dragons 27 - 5 Glasgow Warriors

GUINNESS PRO12 match played at Rodney Parade (Newport) on Sunday October 12th 2003 | No comments

Sean Lamont scored Glasgow's only points in Newport.
Tries were hard to come by at Rodney Parade but Newport Gwent finally achieved two to the Scots' one and had the benefit of five successful penalty kicks.

Most of the early play took place in the Glasgow half but tall winger Sean Lamont caused concern when he ran through some hesitant Dragons tackling. The attack was halted but the same player crossed for a try wide out one minute later when he took a scrummage feed from number eight Paul Dearlove.

Craig Warlow was off-target with his first penalty attempt for the Dragons but fired two over in quick succession to put the home team into the lead.

Glasgow prop Matt Proudfoot was banished to the sin-bin for the statutory 10 minutes for killing the ball on the ground and from the resultant penalty Warlow added three more points for a half-time score of 9-5.

On the resumption Daniel Parks was just off the mark with two penalty attempts, the first from inside his own half. Newport's Steve Winn was obstructed when chasing a chip ahead and Warlow further extended the Dragons' lead with his fourth penalty.

At last the moment the crowd of more than 3,000 had been waiting for arrived. Following a series of scrummages on the Glasgow line Jason Forster forced his way over in the corner for an unconverted try.

Sensing a second victory in the Celtic League was theirs for the taking, the Dragons mounted a series of powerful raids and only strong tackling and some big hits kept them from adding to their try score.

Warlow slotted his fifth penalty and with the last movement of the game replacement prop Rhys Thomas drove over for a second try. This one was converted by Warlow.
