International contingent make their mark in win over Dragons

Ali Price helped Warriors to a bonus-point win in Wales
Ali Price was one of six Warriors released back from the Scotland squad for Saturday's URC win over Dragons at Rodney Parade.

Price played the first 45 minutes in what turned out to be a comfortable 42-48 win over the Welsh outfit. Price and the others joined up with the Scotland squad heading to Spain and the scrum-half hopes he's done enough to put himself in contention to face England at Twickenham next weekend.

Speaking in The Scotsman after the Rodney Parade win, Price said: "I enjoyed it today and felt good. I just wanted to show the best of myself and whatever happens next week happens. Obviously the last one in Twickenham was behind closed doors, so it would be nice to do the same again in front of a full stadium. Similar to Glasgow, we have got all the tools to do the right things in the Scotland squad, it is just about doing that at a high level against pretty decent opposition."

The win made it nine games unbeaten for Warriors and put down a marker against the Dragons - the team that they'll host at Scotstoun in the last 16 of the European Challenge Cup.

"Can't complain with nine unbeaten, I think that since the autumn internationals we have been unbeaten, we are building nicely, staying grounded but at the same time we have done well to keep this run going and will start to get a target on our backs," said Price. "Tomorrow we go to Spain, it is game week and that is where it really starts to narrow in."
