Would dearly like to beat them, would be a decent end to a not so decent season.

Battle of the NSW fullbacks

Would also love to beat them. Beating the dragons out of anyone gives me most satisfaction

Should be a great game, if our forwards can get on top we will win easy

Surely we can win the ruck against their pack.

It's a pretty good bench they have with Ben Creagh, Jack de Belin on it.

Lots of good match ups really.
Farah V Rein
Brooks V Benji
Moses V Widdop
Teddy V Dugan
Overall, I reckon these sides are fairly even on paper, so will be an interesting game.

Dragons will not trouble the finals this year. For a team near to last, we are good odds to knock them off.

I don't know what happened with the Dragons. They have a good roster and were clicking really well for a while there, then all of a sudden - splat! They were so pumped up before the game against the Titans, with everything to play for, but somehow managed to lose. Strange to say the least.

IMHO they lack depth and are short of class in some key positions. Their bench forward rotation is underwhelming and they lack true strike power outside the halves. Their centres are inexperienced.

Benji is still the same kind of player he always was - potentially brilliant, but also able to be pressured into mistakes.

This will make things alot easier. Widdop has killed us in the past.
Gareth Widdop to miss Tigers clash after suffering a quad injury
ST GEORGE-Illawarra’s finals campaign has been thrown into chaos with star five-eighth Gareth Widdop suffering a potentially serious quad injury.

Widdop is considered little hope of being fit for the Dragons crucial final round clash against the Wests Tigers on Saturday with genuine fears he could miss the rest of the season if the injury fails to respond to around-the-clock treatment.

The English international suffered the injury last weekend during the Dragons shock defeat to the Gold Coast Titans.

Widdop failed to complain about his quad in the hours after the match, with the severity of the injury only surfacing on Tuesday following a routine fitness session.

At a minimum, Widdop is expected to miss the next two weeks of football.
