Dragons vs Glasgow

The Dragons welcomes Glasgow to Rodney Parade for this match in the United Rugby Championship. The home team are on a horror run of results and are without a win in this competition in their last five matches. They have only won one of their last nine matches across all competitions. Glasgow on the other hand have hit a purple patch and have won their last four matches in this competition which includes two wins over local rivals Edinburgh and the icing on the cake being a win over the champions Stormers. Once again both teams have been weakened by national call ups.

TIP: The Dragons will be hoping for a better start in this match compared to their last game where they trailed the Lions 30-5 at halftime. They did however make a brilliant comeback in the second half to narrowly lose 30-25. Glasgow also had drama in their last match when they played out a 16-16 draw against Bath in the Challenge Cup. The bookies have Glasgow as favourites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.60, Playabets 1.60 and Sunbet 1.57


Dragons vs Glasgow

  • Glasgow have won three of the last four matches against the Dragons.
  • The last two matches between the sides have been won by Glasgow.

Latest results for both teams

The Dragons lost their last match 30-25 to the Lions while Glasgow drew 19-19 with Bath in their last match.


The Dragons will be glad to be back at Rodney Parade after having their last home match moved because of a frozen pitch. They will be desperate to end their win drought but that will be no easy task against a Glasgow team in peak form. The visitors will look to attack the Dragons scrum and lineouts as they were very poor against the Lions. Glasgow have adopted a running game approach and it will be interesting to see if Duncan Weir at 10 can link up the dangerous backline as he is more a kicking flyhalf. I am predicting an away win by 8 points.
