Preview

Anzac Day festivities kick off at the Allianz as the Roosters, who ended their two game skid last week with a win over Newcastle, host the top of the table Dragons.

Latrell Mitchell is no certainty to return after being ‘rested’ last week while Dylan Napa is a chance to come into the 17 come Tuesday.

Defensively, they were sound last week after a slopping showing against the Broncos and will need to repeat those efforts if they are to curb the high-flying Dragons led by English star Gareth Widdop.

The Dragons put on a clinic in the first half against the Cowboys last week and despite conceding points in quick succession in the second stanza, there’s no questioning who owns the NRL’s most potent offense right now.

The Roosters will have to stop a rejuvenated Tim Lafai after he nabbed a double last week in the first half procession.

Paul Vaughan was brilliant again as were Tyson Frizell and Joel Thompson as they continue to march the Dragons into good field position.

This is without a doubt the game of the round, one that’s extremely hard to pick.

Sydney are the favourites with the bookies but we reckon the Dragons can continue their dream start to 2017.

Dragons by 2.
