The Dragons have won four of the five encounters they have had with Scottish sides in Newport, with just Edinburgh being successful there 17-16 in November. Glasgow Rugby have won just one of their past seven matches in all competitions and have not won away from home in their last seven games since beating the Borders at Melrose on 11 September. The two Celtic League clashes between the teams last season went with home field advantage but the Dragons bucked that trend with a 38-29 victory at Hughenden in September.
