Dragons vs Cardiff Rugby Live"Rugby 13 May 2022: Latest updates as Soccer hit scales before Football
Dragons went in 29-24 at half time away at Welsh rivals Ospreys on Sunday before a second-half overload saw them lose 50-31. They have lost three on the spin since shocking Scarlets 27-38 last month, including the ignominy of becoming the first team to lose to lowly Zebre this season in any competition. Struggling Cardiff beat Zebre 42-14 last Friday to avoid that potential banana skin themselves but this match is still a toss-up between two regions in dire straits and a really tough call. The fact of the matter is that Dragons are winless at home this season and Cardiff are winless on the road, so backing the away side with a generous +5 could be the only way out of a head-scratcher here.

Both teams are pretty much playing for pride at this stage, trying to salvage something from their campaigns of relative disappointment. Players will also be looking to find some form ahead of the summer internationals, with a handful of them out to stake a real claim for starting positions in South Africa.
In terms of the league, there is little to play for but both outfits will want to sign off on a good note as they head into the final knockings of the season.
