if wests-tigers treat them lightly, the dragons will win.
they will be no push-over.
they have plenty of speed to burn in the back line. Dugan & Marshall have a good combo going.
shut down Benji Marshall & Gareth Widdop, and it will cause the dragons issues.
Benji will be out to have a blinder, to show all he still can be a game changer.

in saying that, as long as wests-tigers win, we all will be satisfied.

Beat them up straight through the middle. That's a pretty small team. I don't think there is one recognised specialist prop named.

With Marshall Widdop Dugan Morris and Nightingale they have points in them we need our defense on the edges to be better than it has been for most of the season...Control the pill and our forward pack should be to much for them...

We need to play them with the mentality we played the Bulldogs. Rather than trying to devise a game plan to counter an agile side, we need to just play to OUR strengths.

Benji will be most under pressure i believe , as his former team mates know his game in side out , just don't rush up on him .
We play the percentages and take them up the middle , we should wear them out , easy said than done .
ATTITUDE will be the key
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

Tell Jesse to follow Benji around like the plague and smash him if he so much as blinks.
Their backs concern me, pack not so much.

Exactly. They did to us what we did to the Dogs last weekend.

Really need to have our heads in the game this time.

We lost concentration when we hit the front against them last time. Good rotation of our bench and good focus will be needed this Sunday.

Correct. We ran through a much bigger pack a couple of days ago. We can't go out expecting to win and we need to do the hard yards. Benji may be past his best but if we don't turn up defensively, he'll tear us a new one, and Widdop destroyed us in round 1.

We need to pick up where we left off against the Dogs, play it up the middle, complete our sets and get a good kick/chase in. The rest will follow.
