Ospreys v Dragons RFC – United Rugby Championship (URC) 2023-2024

We visited the Swansea.com stadium in Swansea on Saturday, 18 May 2024, to photograph the United Rugby Championship (URC) Round 17 game between Ospreys and Dragons RFC.

Two tries from Wales hooker Dewi Lake helped Ospreys keep their slim hopes of a United Rugby Championship play-off place alive with a bonus-point win in Saturday’s Welsh derby against Dragons.

Dragons opened the scoring with two Will Reed penalties, but ill-discipline resulted in yellow cards for Aaron Wainwright and Dane Blacker.

Ospreys responded with Lake’s two tries on his 50th appearance and further scores from scrum-half Reuben Morgan-Williams and centre Keiran Williams, while fly-half Reed produced a fine individual effort, scoring all of Dragons’ points.
