Tough, tough ask. The Dragons are a highly professional outfit who have slowly been developing extra strings to their bow this year. If the Tigers are to win it will be in and around the rucks.

I think Saints will win if the Tigers don't fix up their defence. It was very weak in parts last night. Anyone's game though...

If our last passes stick we'll win this one, if not, the Dragons will win it.

Whoever jumps out quick and leads after 20 mins will win, both teams like to score first to the quarter should be fast and hard

We will need to improve, especially our goalline defence.

I'm confident we will turn up to play, but to win this one we really need to step up to another level again.

One thing is for sure and that is this team has bucketloads of perseverance and determination. The way we bounced back after last week was exceptional.

I just don't see the Tiges getting away to any big leads early on against this opposition. Dragons too good.

Our defence will be better than Canberras. But I can feel a really tight game.

I hope the boys take confidence from the round 16 encounter. We were in the game up until the last 5 minutes when the Dragons scored two quick tries after the Tigers switched off.

We had no Robert Lui and Sheens was experimenting with various half combinations which was not doing our attacking flow any favours.

What the Tigers didn't manage to do that game was get on top early with some quick points. I believe that quick points against the Dragons is absolutely essential if we are to win. If 20 minutes have passed and its 0-0 I would be calling a Dragons win.

Dragons will be deserved favourites, and will be tough to beat. The Tigers are close to full strength at present, and they have a full seven days to recover from any niggles. I expect nothing less than a cracking match. Really looking forward to it.

All things being equal the Dragons should win this game. However the burden of history and the burden of expectation, will it still weigh heavily? You can bet your life the Tigers will go out and play their usual high octane brand of football. Just like they will have defensive lapses. In some respects we know what to expect from the Tigers.

Will the Dragons be be crushed by the weight of expectation like in 2005? Honestly their execution in that 2005 preliminary final was disgraceful? Will they panic and start playing catch up footy if the Tigers can ambush them early?

The Dragons have been a much better footy side this year and if they are in the right frame of mind will probably win the game. However Tigers are a very very dangerous team for them to face and could cut the likes of Cooper and Gasnier up if they make bad decisions on the fringes in defence.

Its going to be another belter of a build up. Saints under Wayne Bennett, I feel they are ready this time. I hope im wrong, but gee the pressure really is on them. They will be absoloutely smashed in the media if they go down here, rightly or wrongly.
