    If we can get out to a 34pt lead we should be able to seal the deal

    Dragons should be scared if we play anywhere near last game it was a valiant effort against a good opposition , we aren't far off a win - let's hope it's this week

    I don't think we will be as bad as Manly down 30-0 at half time and totally uninterested. Maybe time for a swab?

    Manly were really poor for most of the game

    They missed 52 tackles, Made 9 errors and gave away 9 penalties

    They also had a sin bin and only had 43% possession

    The Dragons also scored an intercept try and 3 or 4 (can't remember exactly) tries from kicks

    The Dragons were good today but Manly were shocking

    Something is odd at manly, have been good and then this, first half especially, salary investigation?
    Has to be a reason.

    What happens off the field affects performance on the field ...Cherry-Evans comes out and blasts the execs of the club and is dead right why should players have to answer questions about what's going on behind closed doors and the bosses don't and obviously its effecting the whole team ...

    Yeah Frank, I watched that game and there is definitely something happening in the background which is affecting their performances , my first thoughts were the match fixing and Salary .

    It was evidenced by the fact that when they had a player bined and had focussed on the game they put on 3 unanswered Trys in the 10 min period, then clocked off again.

    Either way now that Widdop is playing back into form they will prove worthy adversaries this week end.

    Saints will certainly have tails up, big ask but as long as they keep putting in will have a chance

    We should've beat them at Kogarah. There's no reason we can't beat them at home.

    I have a huge wrap on the influence Widdop has on the Dragons results.

    Was nice to see King give it to Korbin the other week. Hopefully he does the same to his even more useless brother.

    I think Jacob will come in for Paea if he is 100% fit.

    Elliot should be over Sio and Fitzgibbon over Wardle.
