**It’s rarely a one-sided contest when Dragons and Ospreys meet and we can expect a close battle again when the pair face off next.** \n\nThe Guinness PRO14’s resumption brings us six derbies and this one in Swansea may well be the hardest to predict, even though Ospreys have won eight of their last 10 matches. \n\nDragons sit higher in the table, two places and seven points better off in Conference A – and they will hope to evoke memories of their 23-22 victory from two years ago this weekend. \n\n**SETTING THE SCENE**\n\nOspreys can be forgiven for heading to Rodney Parade full of confidence for their meeting with Dragons on December 30 2018. \n\nThe hosts had not beaten another Welsh region in four years, with their last success coming against Cardiff Blues on Boxing Day 2014. \n\nHowever, the festive period has a knack of throwing up unexpected results and that’s exactly what happened 18 months ago.
