Did you know?

  • Connacht Rugby victory in Cardiff on Sunday ended a three-game losing run in the Guinness PRO12, whilst the Irishmen’s only home loss in their last eight matches in all tournaments was to Munster in the PRO12 on New Year’s Eve.
  • Newport Gwent Dragons have won only one of their last five Guinness PRO12 fixtures: 26-8 at home to Treviso in round 13.
  • Dragons have not won away from home in the PRO12 since a visit to Treviso in March 2015.
  • Dragons beat Connacht in round 8 in Newport and have only once before achieved a PRO12 season’s double over the Irishmen, in the inaugural home and away season of 2003/04 – the only previous time Dragons have won in Galway.
