Ospreys Dragons

Ospreys vs Dragons: Stat Attack

The boys travel to Rodney Parade this week for their first of the Welsh derbies. Here’s the numbers behind the fixture.

The Ospreys have won four of their last five United Rugby Championship matches against Dragons RFC, including their most recent by a margin of 19 points and have won nine of their last 12 away games against the Dragons.

Some of the boys have been standout players in the BKT URC stats this year. Nagy is one of just two players to have made over 50 carries this season and also one of just two to have gained 300+ metres, while Dewi made more carries than any other player in the most recent round of fixtures.

Ospreys are the only side to have conceded fewer than an average of eight penalties per game in the BKT URC this season, while the Dragons are one of four sides to have conceded 11+ penalties per game in the league this term.

Jack Walsh is the joint-third top points scorer in the league this year and has been successful from all 10 of his conversion attempts this term, the joint-most of any player to have maintained a 100% record.

Only Leinster Rugby have averaged a greater share of territory per game Ospreys in this season’s United Rugby Championship.

The set piece has been a strong point for the Dragons this season. They are one of just four sides to have retained possession from 90%+ of their own line outs in the BKT URC this season.
