Glasgow Warriors 29 - 13 Dragons
GUINNESS PRO12 match played at Scotstoun on Saturday September 29th 2018 | No comments
Oli Kebble took the man-of-the-match award after a fine display Warriors secured a bonus point win in a hard-working display against Dragons at Scotstoun this evening.
Lee Jones scored a pair of tries and Oli Kebble, Huw Jones and Alex Dunbar also crossed as Glasgow won well, securing a result that means the visitors from Newport have still not won in Scotland since November 2013.
Using the strong wind, Warriors dominated the first half and might have had more reward than the sixth-minute try from Kebble and the effort from Lee Jones two minutes before the break. Adam Hastings converted the first of those, but the Dragons kept on Glasgow's shoulder through two Arwel Robson penalties.
Despite yielding a second try to Lee Jones after 42 minutes, Dragons remained in the game with a 46th-minute breakaway try from Adam Warren, converted by Josh Lewis.
Glasgow's livelier play was rewarded with the bonus-point try by Huw Jones, followed by a late counter from fellow centre Dunbar that was converted by Hastings.
Glasgow head coach Dave Rennie told Radio Scotland: "We're reasonably happy, we played the game in the right areas of the field and I thought our set-piece was dominant. We would like to have been a bit more clinical but some of the tries we got we went through the middle we applied pressure and found the space outside that. Certainly defensively it was a massive step up from last week.
"They put a wall in front of us and we needed to pick through the middle a little bit more. They brought a lot of line speed especially in the channel outside Adam Hastings and we needed to adjust, a couple of times we picked through the middle found a bit of space in behind them and then exposed them."
