Newport Gwent Dragons produced probably the greatest result in their history, when last weekend they travelled to Paris to take on Stade Francais in Pool 3 of the Challenge Cup. A side with only one victory to its name all season could not have travelled with a great deal of confidence to face the team fifth on the Top 14 table, and boasting a 100% win record at the Stade Jean Bouin.

However, the Dragons recorded a marvellous 38-22 win, scoring 4-tries to earn a bonus point into the bargain, while their own line was only crossed once by the increasingly frustrated French club. Friday's visitors to Rodney Parade to take on the Dragons in Round 2, are the Aviva Premiership's Newcastle Falcons, who themselves started with a victory

However, the Falcons win was far more predictable, as the beat the Wolves of Bucheresti from Romania at Kingston Park by 43-19. They may have been pleased with 7-tries of their own, but the Falcons conceded three to their amateur opponents, and they will need to improve defensively, if they want to mount a serious challenge to the cock a hoop Dragons. With back to back games against the Wolves to follow the Falcons game, the Dragons know that a win on Friday will make them firm favourites to win the Pool.
