St George Illawarra Dragons will be aiming to snap their three-match losing streak when they travel across the ditch to face the New Zealand Warriors in the first game on Friday night in NRL Round 11 action.
After leading the competition at one stage last month, the Dragons have dropped to fifth on the ladder on the back of three straight defeats and a bad injury toll, but this clash in New Zealand against the erratic Warriors looms as an excellent chance for Paul McGregor’s side to get back on track.
The Dragons hold a dominant record over the Warriors, winning 20 of their 25 meetings and losing just once in their last 13 showdowns.
Despite going winless over the last three weeks, the Dragons have competed superbly, and they have only suffered close losses to competition powerhouses the Roosters, Storm and Sharks.
With Gareth Widdop and Josh Dugan missing with injury, the Dragons have perhaps lacked that killer edge in the attacking third, but they are still extremely hard to break down, which will certainly frustrate the Warriors.
The Warriors produced a sensational opening half to lead the Panthers 28-6 at halftime last week, but a catastrophic second half collapse saw the Warriors go scoreless, with Penrith fighting back to win 36-28.
Unfortunately, it speaks volumes to the Warriors’ inconsistency over the years that it wasn’t even really surprising. It’s what has held the Warriors back in recent seasons, and until they can put together 80-minute performances, they won’t be playing finals football.
The Warriors showed they can be the most dangerous team in the competition in their first half blitz of the Panthers, but they also can be the worst team in the NRL, as illustrated through their second stanza display.
St George Illawarra have transformed into one of the most professional sides in the competition, and coupled with their great record against the Warriors, they should be disciplined enough to come away with the two points.
