Highlights: Lions claim final day victory

23/05/2022

The Emirates Lions recorded their first win on European soil since the opening weekend as they closed their campaign with a 21-11 win at the Dragons.

Dragons led 11-7 at half-time of this final instalment of the campaign after a 25th-minute try by right wing Rio Dyer and two penalties from fly-half Will Reed.

And the home side were reasonable value for their advantage having enjoyed the bulk of territory and possession throughout the opening 40 minutes.

But the Lions - who won at Zebre Parma in Round 1 - were always in touch after a well crafted try by Edwill van der Merwe in the 34th minute and always looked as though they might make their extra bulk tell as the game wore on.

They did just that. By the 53rd minute the Dragons were behind by 10 points after early second-half tries from lock Ruan Venter and tighthead prop Ruan Dreyer, both converted by fly-half Jordan Hendrikse.
