Preview

Newcastle have been brave, yet outclassed in the past month, but last Friday night they were simply outclassed by the Roosters. It looks as though the demands of the season have worn Nathan Brown’s men out.

The Dragons, on the other hand, ignited their top four hopes with an absolute master class victory over the Sea Eagles. I’d like to see the pick the score dividend on that one.

The win sets a platform for the Dragons, who if they can continue to win, and win well, could find themselves up with the premiership heavyweights.

With all due respect to the Knights, this looks like a case of the Dragons by how many? Like every week, I’m hoping for a Knights break out win, but I can’t see it happening.

Dragons by 20.
