Tovey happy with revenge over Blues

Jason Tovey for Dragons

Settled: Jason Tovey

After failing to be given a fair opportunity at the Blues, Dragons fly-half Jason Tovey is happier than ever after Thursday's 22-16 win.

Tovey is enjoying a fine season with the Dragons as Lyn Jones' revival continues, with the Dragons up to 6th in the league.

"It was great to get a win over the Blues. I don't think I was given a fair crack of the whip there but I've never been happier than now, back at the Dragons," Tovey told the South Wales Argus.

"We were pretty pleased with the win and you can see where this team is going - I thought our work rate was superb and we really played together.

"My performance was okay but I did make a couple of bloopers with my kicks to touch.

"Darren Edwards (head coach) has been working hard with me, Steffan Jones and Kris Burton on our place kicking and our percentage accuracy is right up there.

"They killed us a bit at the breakdown and that's an area we will have to improve on."

The number ten shirt for Wales remains an open race with Dan Biggar, Rhys Priestland and Rhys Patchell in contention. Tovey, still only 26, remains an outside bet for the role - although he is ignoring the speculation.

"I haven't really thought about getting into the Wales squad," added Tovey.

"People are talking about it, but I just want to concentrate on playing well for the Dragons."
