I can't see how we can bounce back from. that rubbish today.
Norman told to go
The team will be up against it.
To he honest I cant see any shining light for the rest of the year.
The raiders have been rubbish.but have the wood on us.
I think worse it yet to come for us.
Whem the tough get going the dragons start running inthe opposite direction.

Raiders back on the way up and looking for a team they can throttle. Pretty much identical to last year Round 8 when we were instantaneously out of the fight from minute 1.

Lowering expectations as much as I can.

Thats the negative vibe we need going into games. We should always be outsiders.
That way there cant be no disappointment

Dragons v Raiders: Sweating on Lomax; James ban served



MATCH PREVIEW


Dragons v Raiders: Sweating on Lomax; James ban served​


Author NRL.com Timestamp Mon 14 Jun 2021, 08:01 PM

St George Illawarra face a monumental task sustaining their top eight challenge after their meek surrender to last-placed Canterbury on the holiday Monday.
The Dragons cling to a playoff spot on percentages, sitting eighth but with the arch-rival Sharks (riding a three-game win streak), Raiders and Warriors all equal with them on 12 points.

Five-eighth Corey Norman and fullback Matt Dufty will be looking to put their best foot forward to attract the interest of rival clubs after being told they aren't in the Dragons' plans but Dufty in particular needs to lift after a disheartening outing against the Bulldogs.
Canberra, in contrast, are on a totally different trajectory after thumping the Broncos 38-16 in a display that had coach Ricky Stuart declaring Canberra were getting their mojo back.

The rundown​

Team news​

Dragons: Coach Anthony Griffin will be sweating on centre and goal-kicker Zac Lomax (thumb) returning as scheduled in round 15 while Poasa Faamausili and Max Feagai could also resume after being sidelined by head knocks.
The Dragons face an anxious wait after Corey Norman, Blake Lawrie and Brayden Williame were all placed on report in the second half of the loss to Canterbury for high tackles.
Josh McGuire and Tyrell Fuimaono still have a week to serve on their suspensions.
Raiders: Veteran prop Ryan James is due back from suspension but may find it difficult to reclaim a place in the 17 after the Canberra pack performed so well against Brisbane.
The lack of injuries and judiciary issues arising from the round 14 triumph means there is a very good chance coach Ricky Stuart will stick with the same squad.

Key match-up​

Ben Hunt v Sam Williams: The Dragons veteran has had a great season but had a few moments he'd like to forget against the Bulldogs. Hunt has three tries, 10 try assists, 19 offloads and 92 run metres a game in 10 outings. Long-time understudy Williams now has an extended run in the starting side following the departure of namesake George Williams. He has just a try, try assist, offload and line-break assist in three games and averages 42 run metres so he still has some way to go in the transition from solid caretaker to impact player.



Stat attack​

Raiders kickers Sam Williams and Jack Wighton will have to be at their quickest and most efficient against the Dragons who lead the NRL in charge-downs. The Red V have blocked seven kicks, three more than the second-placed Eels, while back-rower Tariq Sims (three) is also tops in the individual category.

Not going to solve all our issues but I really want to see Matt Feagai rushed back into first grade for this clash. He showed something in his debut. Ramsey can have a spell. Coach is not giving much away but it would appear he is going to bring our juniors through. This is all fine so long as they are given time and we are not wasting another season next year. Matt would add a lot more interest to the game. He's got the goods.

All the unwanted players need to be shuffled away from the 1st grade side before they do any more damage. Raiders will win by 30+ but I desperately don't want to see a repeat of what I saw against the Bulldogs.

From what I heard the coach doesn't agree. Broken record going back years now but I'd rather play the young prospects and be potentially hammered than watch more of this "oh should we try today boys or nah" jokers.
