Preview

The Dragons head to Jubilee Oval on the back of a poor loss to the Eels in the hope that they can rediscover their early season attacking form against the generally hapless Knights.

Tyson Frizell has been named in the reserves following OriginĀ II, however, Josh Dugan will be on hand to team up with Gareth Widdop as they look to remain ahead of a group of fast approaching chasers behind them.

Jack de Belin’s suspension will give them slightly less firepower up front as they look to overturn a 2-5 record in their last seven starts. That ordinary record coupled with a narrow two-point loss in their last game against the Dragons will give the Knights and their fans some hope, despite their 0-7 record away from home in 2017.

Dane Gagai up against Dugan at fullback will be a highlighted matchup as the Origin pair go head to head once again while Brock Lamb’s form has been promising for the Knights.

Can they eek out their third win of 2017? Sorry, Knights fans. We can’t see it happening.
