Preview

The Dragons will be looking to recapture the form that saw them surprise everyone in the early part of the seasonĀ with a win on Saturday afternoon.

Injuries to Josh Dugan and Gareth Widdop slowed them down somewhat, but with the pair – along with Tyson Frizell – named on an extended interchange and given every chance to return (the latter following Origin), it makes this Dragons side that much more formidable.

Should Widdop return, he’ll take on Tigers debutant Tuimoala Lolohea who crossed over from the Warriors last week. Lolohea wasn’t given the chance to prove himself following Keiran Foran’s arrival and will be looking for a fresh start at Concord.

James Tedesco and Aaron Woods have been named to start while Chris Lawrence will also line up in the second row.

With or without their stars, the Dragons defence has been very impressive in the opening half of 2017, and it will remain a key factor for them in their bid to remain in the top four.
