St George Illawarra Dragons will be looking to back up their phenomenal display of last week when they face resident battlers Newcastle Knights on Saturday at McDonald Jones Stadium.
On the back of last week’s 52-22 thrashing of the Manly Sea Eagles, the Dragons will he aiming to move one step closer towards cementing a finals spot when they clash with the Knights in NRL Round 21 action on Saturday afternoon in Newcastle.
Coming into the Manly showdown in poor form and with their early-season momentum well and truly squashed, many were predicting the Dragons to fall outside the top eight in the coming weeks.
However St George Illawarra produced their best performance for the season and their most potent attacking display in years, putting 50 points on the then third-placed Sea Eagles and once agains signalling their intention as genuine premiership threats.
Now the Dragons must deliver a repeat performance as the favourites – and they will be hoping for an improved showing from their last meeting, which the Knights would still be ruing today.
Newcastle surged out of the blocks back in Round 16 and quickly put together a 28-10 lead heading into the break. But, as has been the problem with them all season, they couldn’t produce an 80-minute performance, and the Dragons came back strongly in the second stanza to complete a narrow victory.
It’s been the story of the Newcastle’s season really – try hard, put in the effort and enjoy successful periods during games, but when push comes to shove, they are simply lacking the class to compete with sides for the full 80 minutes.
The Knights were once again brave last week against competition heavyweights the Roosters, but three quick tries in the last 20 minutes to the Tricolours sealed their fate and an eighth loss on the bounce.
Newcastle know they can match it with the Dragons, but the joint-venture outfit will be brimming with confidence following their demolition of Manly, and they have a tremendous record in the Hunter. You’d expect the Dragons to kick on and put some more distance between themselves and the chasing finals pack.
