Jones provides cutting edge for the Dragons.

Edinburgh ..............15 Dragons .................29 YOUNG stand-off Steffan Jones pulled the strings as the Dragons coasted to a RaboDirect Pro12 win double over Edinburgh who have yet to beat a Welsh side in the league this season.

A couple of cracking tries from right-wing Tonderai Chavhanga early in the first half allowed the Dragons to get their noses in front and they were never really threatened after that.

In an almost immaculate place-kicking performance Jones (pictured) converted both the tries and contributed three penalties to which his replacement Lewis Robling added two more.

Edinburgh showed some nice individual touches but continually let themselves down with poor handling that brought any attacking position to a halt.

Young stand-off Harry Leonard did take the eye and his five penalties from five attempts brought Edinburgh all their points.
