READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the United Rugby Championship Round Four match between the Dragons and Stormers at Rodney Parade in Newport.

The Dragons recorded their first win outside Wales since a victory over Glasgow in December when they triumphed over Connacht in Galway last weekend – their first triumph at the Sportsground since 2004.

Dean Ryan’s side has lost their last four home games but pushed Leinster all the way in a 7-6 defeat in their last Rodney Parade outing.

The Stormers – meeting Welsh opponents for the first time – are yet to register a win in the URC, although they ended a three-game losing run by holding Edinburgh to a 20-20 draw in the Scottish capital last time out.
