THE Dragons shared the spoils with Guinness PRO14 title hopefuls Glasgow at Rodney Parade last night. Here are five things from the 15-15 draw.

1: Attacking Amos

The Wales star transforms the Dragons’ attack and has been sorely missed since suffering an ankle strain against Cardiff Blues on Boxing Day.

He was released from the Six Nations squad to get some game time under his belt and he grasped the chance to give Warren Gatland a selection quandary for Ireland.

Amos countered superbly from full-back, racking up the yards and impressing with his footwork and power, while his left peg provided a nice kicking option.

There were a couple of nervous moments when he was limping after falling awkwardly but he will be better for the 80 minutes.

Gatland now has a dilemma because of the date of the Dragons’ game with Benetton Treviso next weekend.

If it was a Friday game then the wing/full-back would undoubtedly be released for more game time but the fact it’s on Sunday would impact the role he could play with the Wales squad ahead of Dublin.

Added to that, Josh Adams, George North and Liam Williams must go back to Worcester, Northampton and Saracens respectively.

The Dragons will be praying that Gatland is in a charitable mood.

2: Two points gained

Glasgow were weakened by Scotland call-up but not weak, as their record in the PRO14 this season shows. Only Edinburgh, when the Warriors had a shocker against 14 men, have beaten them.

Glasgow’s top talent was up north because of Test duty at Murrayfield but the same was the case in November when they dismantled the Ospreys 47-6 in Swansea.

Well-drilled and powerful, the Warriors were the better team last night but the Dragons showed spirit to cling on for a draw.

The hosts also had their chances but should be the happier of the two teams.

3: Gifting back possession

Glasgow had most of the possession and forced the Dragons to defend with spirit and discipline, particularly in the second half, but it was what the hosts did when they did get their hands on the ball that was most frustrating.

On countless occasions they soaked up pressure, turned the ball over then swiftly booted it back aimlessly.

Neither scrum-half, Dan Babos then Sarel Pretorius, had their best nights in terms of kicking while the Dragons’ organisation when they did wrestle the ball back sometimes left a lot to be desired, perhaps because of the exertions of winning it.

4: Henson remains seated

Gavin Henson hasn’t been as effective over the winter period as he was at the start of his Dragons career but it was strange to leave the playmaker, such a calming presence, on the bench.

Zane Kirchner got the backs moving nicely against Worcester the previous week but wasn’t quite so assured against Glasgow.

There were times in the second half when a genuine fly-half could have made a big difference, especially when the Dragons had a rare sortie into the Warriors’ 22 but lacked direction or the composure to set up a drop goal.

“The way the game was going, it was so fast-paced, I think it would have been pretty hard to get up to speed in the last 10 minutes,” said head coach Bernard Jackman afterwards.

“Gav is right in the mix. We weren’t sure how long Hallam would last so we were keeping Zane in the field in case we had to put him to full-back.

“It wasn’t that we didn’t want to use him, it was just the way that the game unfolded.

“In the last 10 minutes, we just felt there wasn’t any point. In the last few minutes, we didn’t have a kickable penalty or any real drop goal opportunity.”

5: Power game

The Dragons have often been outmuscled this season – hence the recruitment of extra beef from Ross Moriarty, Richard Hibbard and Huw Taylor for next term – and they were often under the pump against the Warriors.

To that end it was good to see powerful back row forward Harrison Keddie enjoying another 80 minutes while props Gerard Ellis and Leon Brown added oomph from the bench.

The Dragons still lack depth with both locks and the back row having to play the full 80 minutes because of the green Henri Williams and Lennon Greggains being among the replacements.

However, it was encouraging that they didn’t crack like they often did in the first half of the season.
