Warriors slay Dragons

Tim Swinson scored twice in Glasgow's rout

Newport Gwent Dragons went down to a record 60-3 defeat as Glasgow Warriors ran riot at Rodney Parade in the RaboDirect PRO12 with an eight-try haul.

The hosts conceded 27 points in the first half, with Glasgow getting tries from centre Mark Bennett, wing Niko Matawalu and centre Alex Dunbar against a solitary Tom Prydie penalty.

And, with fly-half Duncan Weir adding two penalties and three conversions before the break, the visitors added 33 unanswered points before the end via tries from Taylor Paris, Tim Swinson (two), Josh Strauss and Fraser Thomson. Weir converted two of those and Scott Wight another two.
