Dragons RFC head coach Dai Flanagan has ordered his squad to “raise” themselves for their EPCR Challenge Cup Round of 16 tie at Glasgow Warriors on Saturday after their 37-18 BKT United Rugby Championship loss at Ospreys last weekend.

With so many Scottish internationals in the Glasgow squad, he warned that the Welsh region will be facing almost the national team at the Scotstoun Stadium.

“We must raise ourselves because we are basically playing against Scotland. If we perform like that [against Ospreys], it will be a tough day,” he said.

“We all enjoyed watching Scotland in the Six Nations and how they moved the ball. If we can’t match the set-piece and are not disciplined, then they will have entry after entry and will score more points.

“They will have plenty of internationals on show and we need to be better. But we’ll work hard, we’ll stick together and we’ll go again.”
