    Seriously, We're a current top 4 side(sure,with the wobbles) playing the bottom placed side who is favourite for the spoon.It should be a matter of by how many.If they play poorly again & get beat L plate should clean his desk out first thing Sunday morning.

    We need to start fast
    If we have good line speed
    And run good lines
    Play smart
    Don’t try to win the match i. The first 20
    Be prepared to get in the grind for the first 20
    If we can get 12 in front it could be partly time
    After 20 i think the eels fold ( its been a hard year for them)
    The longer the eels stay with us the harder it will be
    Don’t let them get a sniff , we give them a sniff it could be very dangerous

    Does anyone else reckon that Nighty got the tap and was told that he wouldn't be playing anymore this season once Nene came back? SO he retires and then has a "neck injury". Suspicious.
    I reckon he will get one more obligatory game against dogs round 24 as a farewell and thats it for nighty.

    I hope it is a positive one, as opposed to the statements made for the past 2 months.

    I wouldn’t be moving either player to defend on the right.

    Lomax should come in as well.

    St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has been forced into changes 24 hours out from the Dragons' Round 22 clash against the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium on Saturday, August 11.

    Just a day after announcing his retirement at season's end, Jason Nightingale has had to withdraw due to a neck complaint. Although Nene Macdonald (foot) returns in the veteran winger's place.

    Hame Sele is the other name to drop off, leaving Jacob Host and Zac Lomax as the remaining names outside of the current 17.

    Game day. I just want a victory and some signs that we are heading north again. It doesn't have to be a clinical display just yet but needs to be much improved.
    Go forward through the middle. Offloads. No crabbing across field. Halves running more not kick happy.
    JDB running back onside not walking with hands on head. Frizzell mixing it up, maybe even an offload somewhere.
    A win is required.
