THE Dragons endured a nightmare in Dublin when thrashed 54-10 by Leinster. Here are five things from the Guinness PRO14 encounter. 1: No more trips to IrelandIt’s not a new thing for the Dragons to struggle against all four of the provinces but this season has been particularly grim. It started badly in September in Belfast with a 52-25 defeat, and remarkably that eight-try hammering proved to be the best scoreline.
DRAGONS boss Bernard Jackman is relieved to be heading back to Newport, believing a December at Rodney Parade will boost his side’s flagging confidence. The region endured a 54-10 hammering at Leinster in the Guinness PRO14, bringing to an end a draining run of games on the road. They have played just once on home soil since September, against the Scarlets in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, and have taken to the field in Cardiff, Newcastle, Moscow, Swansea, Cork, Northampton and Dublin.
THE DRAGONS were daring to dream early on a perishing night in Dublin but a bright start was followed by an all-too-familiar end as Leinster dished out a 54-10, eight-try hammering in the Guinness PRO14. The Rodney Parade region came flying out of the traps to enjoy a 10-0 lead thanks to a try by back row forward James Benjamin and five points from Gavin Henson’s right boot.
Obviously that wasn't good by the Dragons but there were a smattering of flashes in there. Ellis Shipp did pretty well on full debut, Aaron Wainwright is a real grafter, back row tried manfully (but ball carrier lacking).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
