**Jonah Holmes extended his impressive run of form with a pair of tries as the Dragons opened their Guinness PRO14 Rainbow Cup campaign with a big win against the Scarlets.** \n\nHolmes’ double contributed to a total of seven Dragons tries in the 52-32 win at Rodney Parade and took him to eight tries in his last seven matches. \n\nThe 28-year-old, who can play on the wing or at full-back, has really hit his stride since making his debut for the Newport-based region in September. \n\nHere, we take a look at the Dragons try machine’s life and career so far. \n\n**Sporting pedigree** \n\nHolmes, who was born in Stockport in July 1992 and raised in Ealing, did not have to look far for sporting inspiration growing up. \n\nHis uncle, Andy Holmes, was a two-time Olympic rowing gold medalist, having triumphed in the coxed four in 1984 before winning the coxless pair four years later – competing alongside Team GB great Steve Redgrave on both occasions.
