    I love it when the other side comes out and makes brash comments like Reynolds.

    If we play hard we should win. They have nothing to play for - and a few are off - so even less.

    I have a feeling if we make the finals we will win a few games.

    If we play hard and value field position in defence we may win.
    The dodgies have a lot to play for........Personal pride and if the salary cap woes are to be believed a place in the team for 2018 or the don't come back next year and look for a new team incentive.:rolleyes:

    No, certain players are going regardless - they know this. They cannot fit Foran or "Shirley" in without them going.

    I am betting some of them staying....or going depends on this weekend.
    Most are under a contract who would have to be paid out if they cant be "encouraged" to leave.
    Desi would appear to have spent up so big that Kasiano and Co who we know are leaving will not be enough but thats their problem.
    The Dragons players also will have to step up this weekend and hope those in charge of finances can work out the fiscal issues.

    NRL.com predicts: Both teams are in this one up to their eyeballs but with everything to play for and given the determination we showed last week, we'll back McGregor's men to get the job done in a close one. Dragons by two.

    I am hoping I am very wrong because I tend to think the Dodgies will lift more than the Dragons

    Another position for Zac Lomax. I feel he will develop in the back row.

    Some top juniors coming through - hopefully we'll keep a few.

    My thoughts exactly. The club puts so much tie into them only for other clubs to reap the benefit.

    First Half
    Simple errors and not even being prepared for the well known dodgies short kick off.
    Defence yielding the same massive amounts of metres as well as the wingers not marking up against their opposite
    Our attack looked like a bunch of headless chooks. Plenty pf passing and offloads BUT NO purpose in mind just hoping for something to happen.
    The game looked over to me after the first 5 minutes however they still have another 40 to go.
    Some iffy refereeing decisions which the dodgies are not getting the rub of the green on yet.

    record.jpg second half
    Basically the same as the first but a lot more effort from both teams. Unfortunately apart from a brief run of good games at the start of the season the Dragons were not up to it.
    The number of times each set teams finish up in the Dragons 30 metre zone or closer is basically their undoing as you cant keep defending your line.
    Back to the drawing board for next season for them.

    If I was a Dragons fan I'd be furious with that dismal capitulation. They scored a couple of nice tries on the few occasions they got it right, but nothing forgives that listless first half showing in a must-win game against opponents with only pride to play for. And let's be right: the Dogs are no great shakes. Which proves the point, I suppose. If you can't beat them...
