    If we drop the ball like we did against the Dragons we will get smashed. Guess the only positive is an away game where we seem to go okay.

    My team
    1. Dugan
    2. Monaghan
    3. Croker
    4. Joel Thompson (Vidot)
    5. Vidot (Low)
    6. Campese
    7. McCrone/Mogg - Attack still looks lost
    8. Shillington
    9. Buttriss
    10. Tilse
    11. TLL
    12. Harrison
    13. Fensom (JT)

    14. Carney (interchange hooker since Tongue isn't ready)
    15. Thurling
    16. Logan
    17. Thompson - Troy actually played pretty well last night although won't complain if Mataora takes his place.

    Have we already played them?

    Dragons at home (either of their homes) will be extremely tough! Currently sitting top of the table with 8 wins from 10 games, scored 225 points and only let in 91. Five of those games have been "Home" games and they've won all 5 comfortably!

    This team is big, strong, can score from anywhere on the park and have a good defensive record. Our only hope is that ARL spring a sudden Rep game on us and 6 or 8 of their players are unavailable on the day!

    Last year they were the team to beat. we did.

    It's a must we complete our sets. Once thats done then we can put different attacking options into the place.

    I think we have a huge chance in this Draagons will have a second grade team because of SOO I camp and raiders will only have couple of players out.

    Boyd, Weyman, Costigan, Morris, Cooper and Creagh may be missing. It'll take a tough effort for us to win this game. Especially since we never seem to win against you lot :(

    Fensom this week apparently and ABC radio said Tongue is having surgery on his groin injury next Tuesday will be out for 12 weeks.
