THERE has not been a bad game between the Dragons & the Roosters for many a year & with both sides desperate for a win on Monday, things should not be any different.
THE two best things to come out of last weeks gallant loss to the Panthers out at Penrith Park. Firstly, the club showed a lot more heart ? in previous weeks, it would?ve been 48-8 instead of 18-8; secondly, English referee Russell Smith cannot referee us two weeks in a row.
WHO would?ve thought that the fixture corresponding to last season?s 4th vs 5th semi final would be a match to decide who props up the NRL ladder only 6 months later?
CAN we please try that again? Last Friday was not the start to the season that Dragons fans wanted. The team played below our expectations & there wasn?t enough Red & White in the stands for a game against one of our traditional rivals.
THERE is no bigger ask in Rugby League than playing the defending premiers on their home ground. And to add more spice to the encounter, the Dragons are hardly coming off the ideal preparation on or off the paddock. With that in mind, the Dragon Army needs to come out in force & support our boys on Friday night.
AS the end of the cricket season approaches, the din of cicadas starts to quieten & the balmy summer nights get cooler, the 22nd Charity Shield marks the official start of our season & the Dragon Army wants YOU to be there to experience it with us.
