Northampton dominate in 48-14 win over Dragons

Taqele Naiyaravoro of Northampton Saints is tackled by Hallam Amos of Dragons as he scores a try during the Challenge Cup match between Northampton Saints and Dragons

Northampton Saints boosted their chances of qualification from Pool 1 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup with this seven-try romp.

Saints were well on their way to victory by half-time when they had already built-up a 19-0 advantage.

Centre Luther Burrell, Fijian second-row forward Api Ratuniyarawa and hooker James Fish all went in for tries with Dan Biggar adding two conversions.

Dragons made a fine start to the second period with centre Adam Warren winning the race to a grubber kick and fly-half Josh Lewis converted to give the visitors hope.

It was to prove a false dawn as Saints quickly responded with Burrell’s second and there was no way back for Dragons after that as Fijian winger Taqele Naiyaravoro helped himself to a brace of touchdowns.

Scrum-half Alex Mitchell and winger Ollie Sleightholme also crossed for tries while Dragons only other response was a touchdown by flanker Nic Cudd converted by Lewis three minutes from time.

Next Saturday Northampton visit Timisoara Saracens while Dragons travel to France to take on Clermont Auvergne
