Melbourne has to lose one eventually and this week without Cronk seems like a good one.

Not based on what I've sat through at each game of the Dragons over the last month.
With or without Cronk, Melbourne will belt us.

They are hungry, motivated, passionate and want it.
Everything Saints don't have right now.

I'd love to see my boys turn it around in 5 days, but it's not going to happen.

No it won't.
Are Smith, Slater, Blair, Widdop and Proctor in doubt?
That's the only way it will be close.

Mate...the likes of Soward, Hornby, Weyman need to step up and be counted.

Don't pin your hopes on Bennett...

Can't see Dragons winning this myself. The passion + desire aren't there.

That will be the half time score.
The result of 2000 might be re-visited on Friday night.
Slater might get Merritt for the most tries scored in a match this year.

He'd have to put Smith to 7 if Maurice Blair is out because Widdop and Luke Kelly in the halves for the biggest match of the year probably wont cut it.

I can't see him moving Smith, I think Kostjayson will play 7 if Bobbie isn't match fit.

St George Illawarra will step up for this game - Bennett will have them pumped as if it is a final.

Storm by 6

Storm by 8....but only that big of a margin at the end. Believe me, Dragons WILL turn up. Can't wait - I'll be there!!

Swansea have a bigger chance of beating City 5-0 than we have of winning this one.
