Welcome to ASB Football Park for the first time in 2012. Conditions not so flash, it is overcast and cool, and has been raining steadily in Christchurch this morning. Hopefully it will remain dry for kick-off. Team news to follow-is Aaron Clapham fit.. and will new English recruit Daniel Glozier make his Dragons debut?
Clapham returns to Dragons line-up- no place for Daniel Glozier-word is his clearance papers did not come through on time. Almost underway- the rain staying away for the moment.
