Comments in here thanks guys and gals. And please keep it clean, anything containing swearing, disguised or otherwise will be deleted, as will personal attacks and spam.

Hopefully the Tigers will be on fire tonight and we'll all be happy little vegemites though.

Well it's cold, wet and windy. Not conditions the Tigers like, but here's hoping they aim up and can grind out an important win.

Wet slippery ground apparently, hopefully we can do to the Dragons what we did to Canberra in similar conditions

Wind at the Dragons back in the first half.

Bloody olympics coverage means all NRL channels in Dubai are showing crap events no one would ever watch and NRL matches are on delayed coverage as a result. I'll be streaming and checking in on the forum from time to time. Good luck tigers. Play well.

Dragons made easy metres off their first set, but at least Moltzen was solid at the end in defusing a bomb.

And the Tigers get the first penalty on the last tackle. Should go on the attack here.

Tigers got a bit muddled up there after getting away a couple of offloads.

First 40 will be all about ball control and defence.

Great cleanup work by Fulton on the last tackle.

They still are gaining too many meters.

Given the conditions, it's vital the Tigers stick as close as possible to the Dragons in the first half. It will probably be a smart ploy to kick early a bit in the second half and turn the Dragons around if it's close.
