As expected....
If Dugan is out, who do they bring in Aikin, Mata'utia or someone else?

So Dugan is definitely in then? Still a good looking team despite their poor effort last night. Fancy having Rose in front of Merrin, but this is what happens when you sign a contract elsewhere Trent. Nightingale and Widdop always have blinders against us. Widdop just seems to instinctively know how to cut us to pieces, for some reason. And Benji? Well anything is possible with him - let's hope it's more of his passes into the crowd and kicks out on the full then any of the arsey magic he can produce, otherwise we'll be in strife.

Decent looking backline but the forward pack is nothing special. If we're switched on we should beat them through the middle and win this one.

I agree Flip, I don't think this will be a walkover.

This game will be a very tight arm wrestle.
Don't forget the dragons smacked wests-tigers butt well and truly in both games last season.
You under estimate them and they will embarrass you on the field.

I thought the Dragons forwards Aimed up pretty well against the Storm and they did only concede 12 points....

This game could be a lot closer than people think....Dugan Nightingale Marshall Widdop will all be better for the run....And if Mitch Rein scores from dummy-half....I'll spew.... :brick:

Dugan will need a miracle if he plays next Monday.

Benchy was also limping on the news , but he was probably told to limp for the cameras ?

No gloating and id be very surprised if its a walk over. We always struggle in these games and The Dragons will lift and improve on their first round loss.

But their team is average and half of them are reserve graders.

I've lost count the amount of times Dugan goes down with looks a major injury only to be fine.

They say Dugan will be out for 3 months.

Gasnier used to do it to us - we were like wallabies in the headlights - mesmerised, just watched him shimmy past for 3 or 4 tries.

Benji and Widdop will do the same if we let them - as soon as they get the ball you just have to go in and crunch them. No standing back watching them. If they pass or kick they haven't got the ball and someone less dangerous does.

Watch them and lose. No thanks. Crunch them an win. Way to go!

Gasnier used to rip up Shane Elford. There was one game he beat him 4 times to either score or set up the try

I imagine Benji wants to have a good game against us. Especially at Campbelltown. It's shaping up to be another edge of your seat, nail biting game....problem is I don't have any nails left to bite, after the Titans game :shock:

Dugan was only named cos they played last night. Teams that play Monday nights always regurgitate the same side for the team lists on Tuesday. He did his ankle, he won't be playing.
