MATCH DAY REPORTBristol Rugby vs Newport Gwent Dragons

Bristol Rugby 19-34 Newport Gwent Dragons

Bristol’s opening pre-season fixture ended in a 34-19 defeat as Newport Gwent Dragons claimed the spoils at the Clifton RFC training base on Sunday.

Luke Eves and Jack O’Connell crossed for the hosts, while referee Simon Harding awarded a first half penalty try.

It was the visitors who edged in front inside five minutes when Jason Tovey split the uprights with an angled penalty goal.

The Dragons fly half extended the lead soon after when he carved an opening between two white shirts to dab down for a converted try.

Ross Rennie and Mark Cooke went close for Bristol in quick succession, before Ryan Edwards was bundled into touch just metres from the whitewash.

The home side did engineer a route back into the game on the half hour mark as referee Simon Harding awarded a penalty try following a driving lineout, while Jarvis slotted the simple conversion.

On the stroke of the interval, Rynard Landman burrowed over from close range for a converted try, moving the score to 7-17 in the Dragons’ favour.

And Jason Tovey converted his second successful penalty goal of the afternoon to give the Gwent outfit a thirteen point advantage at half-time.

Bristol hit back in the second period as Jack O’Connell marked his club debut with an unconverted try, muscling his way over from five metres.

Dragons notched a third try when Cory Hill rounded off a sublime counter-attack to skip his way through, while Rhys Jones converted.

In an end-to-end second half, Luke Eves latched onto Ben Skirving’s smart offload to keep Bristol in touch with a converted score at 19-27, before Charlie Amesbury almost capitalized on Craig Hampson’s chip ahead.

After Rhys Jones had skewed a penalty goal attempt wide, Owen Evans scythed through to touch down between the sticks for a converted try, as the Dragons sealed a 19-34 win.
