First, they dented Manly’s finals hopes and now they have a chance to end St George’s. The Bulldogs are firing offensively – I know, I can’t believe I said those words in 2017 either – and will look to end their season with three wins on the trot.
The Bulldogs have produced their highest-scoring efforts over the past fortnight with 30-point and 26-point displays and while Brett Morris is out through injury, Chase Stanley comes in to replace him. Josh Reynolds has been named on the reserves in what will be his final match in Bulldogs colours and as they get set to take on the Dragons who welcome back Josh Dugan after he was sensationally dropped last weekend for disciplinary reasons.
A win for the Dragons is the only chance they have of making the finals with a superior points differential to Manly, North Queensland and Penrith working in their favour.
Matt Frawley has controlled the Bulldogs attack very well in recent weeks and has shown he is more than capable of leading this side around the park next season.
With their season on the line, the Dragons have it all to play for however despite being clear favourites, we think the Bulldogs can cause a boil over and send the Dragons packing.
