Preview

If you told anyone at the start of the season that the Dragons would be third and the Tigers be last on the ladder after four rounds, you may have been laughed out of the room, but here we are.

The Dragons continue to defy the odds and are playing some good football that has included back to back wins over New Zealand and Cronulla.

The Tigers meanwhile played a solid half on the back of many Melbourne errors before the Storm ran over the top of them in the second half to resign Wests to the bottom of the ladder.

Luke Brooks is out for the Tigers with a hamstring injury which will put the ball in the hands of Mitchell Moses a lot more, something that Moses has relished in the past however sometimes when it rains, it pours and it feels like that’ll be the case for the Tigers.

Dragons by 8.
