Amlin Challenge Cup, Pool 3: NG Dragons 53-3 Mogliano

Wayne Evans passes the ball

Newport Gwent Dragons scored eight tries as they completed a comprehensive double over Italy's Mogliano.

The hosts won 33-0 in the previous weekend's encounter.

And Mogliano fared little better as Dan Evans, Mike Poole and Wayne Evans crossed in an opening period in which the irresistible hosts were also awarded a penalty try.

Pat Leach, Jonathan Evans, Phil Price and Jack Dixon crossed after the break to register the bonus-point win.
