Statement from The Dragons

Following a strong performance against Ulster the game was somewhat soured when the Newport Gwent Dragons team were singled out for racial abuse by a minority of the Ravenhill crowd.

Following a strong performance against Ulster the game was somewhat soured when the Newport Gwent Dragons team were singled out for racial abuse by a minority of the Ravenhill crowd.

The issue having been raised by the players at half time was then taken up by The Dragons management and brought to the attention of the Ulster officials. The Dragons will confirm in writing to Ulster their concerns and disappointment over the incident.

The Dragons realise that it was a small minority but feel the issue needs to be raised as is not acceptable in society and the game of rugby football.

No further comment will be made at this stage.
