    This was always going to be a huge game but now that the Dragons lost and the Broncos won this week, this one is even bigger. Should get a big crowd, if all our fans down south get out to the game (and we should want to impress like the Raiders fans did this week)

    Hopefully our loss to Canberra, woke the boys up, also Scott, Prior and Cooper should be back.

    Dragons by 4.

    I'm sorry that we've played the Broncos into such form. But if you are really are the real deal Dragons, you should still be good enough to win this game at home. Dragons by 10

    If the dragons are missing a few players it will even things up.. Brisbane will be up for this, 5 days after hammering penrith.

    i cant wait for this game, should be a cracker. Bennett will want the Dragons to turn up and stand up big time for this game. With our record against the Broncos i honestly have a feeling that we will give them a walloping. Lets see you step up Hodges and get your revenge :roll:

    A massive game after a loss for the Dragons and a couple of big wins for the Broncos. It will be a big test for saints I hope they respond in an awesome way and beat the Broncos!

    Today's second half was absolutely magic to watch and i'll enjoy it for what it was, but looking to next week i'm not convinced that an entire season's worth (yes, even though we started well) of suspect defence can be fixed enough after one half of football to frustrate the competition frontrunners. And if the Dragons are fair dink, they'll continue to expose that season long problem.

    The huge difference today though was attitude and hopefully that'll go a long way to making for a decent game on Friday.

    As far as our finals chances go, I believe 2 wins out of the remaining 3 will get us there. Most would pencil this in as a very likely loss, so an upset would do wonders for our chances. Realistically though, hard to go past the Dragons by 13+. However, hopefully it won't turn out to be another creaming and it'd be nice to see our boys turn up with a keen, enthusiastic attitude for consecutive weeks.

    This would be a terrible time for Hodges to see a red mist. Someone needs to keep his head in check this week.

    Good comment. Dragons are a class act and it should be a good game.

    heh forget about Hodges.. Ben Creagh is going to have Dave Taylor running at him.. and we all know Creagh loves to run at Lockyer, should be good.

    Eh.. Saints are pretty much Brisbanes boggie team, and they are running on top of the ladder. No way we can win this.

    I just hope we don't get smashed to bad.

    Yes but Creagh can you know, actually tackle. Should be a good game. I'm expecting a close encounter that could go down to the wire. However I think we'll get home.

    Saints 1-12
