The Dragons threw wide open the race for a place in the final of the WRU Age Grade Championship by beating the Blues at the Welfare Ground, Newbridge last night.

Flanker Grant Rogers and lock and captain Tom Crandon crossed for tries with scrum half Adam Jones kicking five points in his side's 15-3 victory over the Blues.

Dragons Team manager Billy Vyvian said, " We are absolutely delighted with the win. We deserved to win and hopefully, this will be the victory which drives us on to greater things."
