The holiday period brought no joy for struggling Newport Gwent Dragons, who were beaten in both of their Welsh derby fixtures, at the Blues and at home against the Ospreys, extending their losing streak in the RaboDirect PRO12 tournament to three games, since they beat Edinburgh at the end of November. Occupying tenth position in the table, the Dragons will hope to secure just a fourth win of the PRO12 season on Friday Evening, when they host the Italians of Benetton Treviso at Rodney Parade. Treviso being one of just two sides below the Dragons in the table.

Treviso have won only twice in the competition themselves this season, but one of those victories came at home against the Newport Gwent Dragons in late September by 27-11. The only other taste of success was against fellow countrymen from Zebre two days before Christmas. The 23-12 derby success lifting them off of the foot of the ladder. Benetton have collected just 11 points from the 12 games that they have played ahead of Friday's fixture, which leaves them four points adrift of the Dragons, but perhaps more importantly from their own point of view, two ahead of Zebre, with the leading Italian side at the end of the regular season assured of a place in next season's Champions Cup.

Both the Newport Gwent Dragons and Benetton Treviso, who meet at Rodney Parade on Friday night in Round 5 of the Guinness PRO12 tournament, are desperate for a victory that they hope will kick start their season. The Dragons will be glad to be back in familiar surroundings, having returned empty handed from Glasgow and Leinster in their last two fixtures in the tournament. Their only success in the last five games that they have played in the PRO12, came in Round 2 of this season's competition, against the other Italian participants from Parma, Zebre, who were beaten 13-0 on the Dragons home ground.

The Italians from Benetton Treviso haven't won outside their national boundaries in any competition, since they travelled to the Scarlets in May 2013, when they won in the RaboDirect PRO12. Not an impressive record to put them in confident mood ahead of playing a side that has won all five games they have played at home, since Connacht won at the venue in February. The Italians have at least managed to secure three losing bonus points from their four defeats this season, which keeps them off of the bottom of the table, a position currently occupied by the pointless Zebre.

Going into just Week 4 of the Guinness PRO12 tournament, there are only three sides left without a win, and two of those teams will meet on Sunday at Rodney Parade, when the Newport Gwent Dragons host Benetton Treviso from Italy. The Dragons have at least picked up a couple of bonus points during the first weeks of the season, while the bottom of the table Italians, like their compatriots from Zebre, have failed to register a single match point in the new season to date.

The only PRO12 win that the Dragons have managed in their last 11 fixtures in the tournament, came against Treviso in Round 22 at the end of last season, when they squeezed a narrow 20-19 home victory. That success, was the only time that Newport have tasted victory in their last five matches at Rodney Parade. Treviso defeated the Dragons on 12th May at the Stadio Monigo, the only time that they have beaten a Welsh Region since May 2013, but since that victory, they have lost six consecutive PRO12 matches. Treviso's last win on the road came in Wales, when they beat the Scarlets in Llanelli in the last round of the 2012-13 season.

Newport Gwent Dragons have little to play for when they host the Italians from Benetton Treviso on Saturday, except to try and end a run that has seen them go seven RaboDirect PRO12 fixtures without a victory, since they defeated Glasgow Warriors at Rodney Parade at the end of February by 24-23. Treviso on the other hand, have everything to play for at Rodney Parade, as they seek to win the qualifying place open to the Italian sides in next season's European Champions Cup.

Until last week, it looked fairly certain that Treviso would be the Italian representatives in the Champions Cup, but they were heavily defeated by Glasgow, while their rivals from Zebre sprang a surprise by defeating the play-off chasing Ospreys. Treviso are left in the precarious position of having to gain more points from their final round match against the Dragons, that Zebre manage to take from their trip to the Glasgow Warriors. Treviso has yet to win away from home this season, and have not won on Welsh soil since April 2012, when they won their last match of the campaign at the Scarlets. However, Treviso will take comfort from the fact that the Newport Gwent Dragons have beaten them just once in the last five clashes between the teams, when they won at Rodney Parade by 23-14 in February 2013.
