I have a feeling in me waters that we are going to make it 3 from 3 tomorrow night. Although I do wish MB all the best in his new job, it would be something for the ex players under Brads to show him how we've progressed. Plus Edinburgh are minus a few key players with world cup.

Of course we can, and hopefully then Newport at home will be 4 out of 4!!!

If we do make it three from three, I'd hope to see a BIG crowd at The Sportsground for the game against Newport-Gwent.

I agree with you on that one Bref, I would behopingfor 4000+ at least, if that is the case!!

Altho the Friday evening Kick off might hamper that a bit, I am leaving straight from work I am sure there will be plenty in my position and possibly a few that wont be able to get there on time!

Regardless of next weekend's result away in Scotland I hope we get a big crowd @ the SG against the dragons full stop.


the lads have made a great start to the new season and we SHOULD be there to support them, to drift away after 1 defeat wouldn't be fair to team / management.

No we must help our side in any way we can (flags / colours / singing / encourgement etc.) and if you cant do anything like this AT LEAST TURN UP.



What about "support your team through thick and thin"

Away wins are really difficult for us to achieve so I would be happy with a bonus point defeat, tbh.

The atmosphere was soooo good last week that I think word of mouth will get more people there for the Dragons and the fact that it will be a night match should make the atmosphere even better.

Edinburgh are severely depleted by World Cup commitments, this should, and will be a targeted game for Eric & the boys. We cannot except a bonus point !!! we should strive to be competative in all our games defeat is not an option.

After Cardiff hammered them I thought we're in the frame for a win, but they rattled Ospreys while we allowed Scarlets to boss us about for a lot of the time at home. We can win it, but an LBP is probably the bookies bet.

After the first two results and the tight manner than we came through them I think the lads are starting to get a bit of steel and determination about them. The last two games are definitely ones we would have rolled over in before and been satisfied with the losing bonus point but the team seems to have a real drive to finish on the winning side in the tight games.
I certainly think the lads that have come in will improve even more through the season and be a match for any team even when the world cup players come back. They always say that winning is a habit and I think the lads can come out on top of this one. We were unlucky not to score more tries last week with some of the excellent breaks we made and looking at Edinburgh's previous matches they seem to be shipping a few tries every game. Hopefully Henry, Mark and Eoin can exploit this.
I certainly think we can make it 3 from 3 tomorrow.

Edinburgh are hungry for their 1st win. While they have lost 2 games, they have been scoring tries. Something we have not really been doing. It's going to be another tough game and I'd be happy with a LBP, delighted with a win.

Oh, and we have another Italian ref! But he has 4 times as much experience as the ref we had last week, so that's ok  O:-)

Tough on TJ, but a full time seond row in DG is needed.

Yep, spot on. They have been playing well so far and there is till a lot of talented players in the squad ( Simon Webster and Roddy Grant). The big dangerman is Tim Visser who scores tries for fun. He's Dutch born and in the qualifying process for Scotland, think he's eligble for the 6N but not for RWC but he's an absolute shoe in for a spot once qualification is completed.

They will absolutely be targeting this for the win and will look to get away form us early as it's a home game. We have to start quickly, absolute must....
