It’s safe to say that these two teams have surprised most people over the first month of the season. Of course, for the Dragons, it’s been a positive shock, with hardly anyone expecting them to register three wins from four, especially toppling the likes of competition heavyweights Cronulla and Penrith.
The Tigers meanwhile have been hugely disappointing, especially after an opening round thumping of the Rabbitohs. Since then, the joint-venture outfit have suffered two horrible losses to the Raiders and Panthers, sacked coach Jason Taylor and blown a 14-point lead against Melbourne to sink towards the bottom of the ladder.
It now comes as no surprise that the Tigers are desperate for two points to get their season back on track, while interim coach Andrew Webster remains in charge, with reported new coach Ivan Cleary still yet to put pen to paper.
The Tigers showed how dangerous they can be with the ball in hand and when their attack clicks, quickly racing out to a 14-0 lead over Melbourne. But their discipline and defence is still really poor, and until that area improves, the Tigers won’t be beating the best teams in the competition.
Speaking of the best teams in the competition, you’d certainly have to place the Dragons in that group at the moment.
In past seasons the Dragons have been criticised for a lack of muscle up front and poor attack, but they’ve turned that around this season.
St George Illawarra have scored more points than any other team in the competition and the most tackle busts in the NRL – and that’s illustrated through their third position on the ladder.
On the back of their go-forward and newly improved attack, I can’t see the Dragons losing this one. They can exploit the Tigers’ brittle defence, while they should win the battle of the forwards. On current form, all signs point to a Dragons victory.
