UNFORCED ERROR ST. GEORGE ILLAWARRA DRAGONS

St. George Illawarra Dragons 14-10

HALFTIME at Kogarah - the Dragons have looked the better of the two sides but the Cowboys put in plenty of minutes in peppering the Dragons line, eventually coming good just before the break. Definitely could go either way here - let's see if the Cowboys can finally win on the road!

Penalty Dragons from the kickoff. Ashton Sims has NAILED Ben Creagh but then gone on with the tackle a bit. Afterwards Creagh gives Ashton a gobful which results in brother Tariq and then half the playing squads on the field coming in for some push and shove.

Looks as though Cowboys have been forced into a drop-out, with Winterstein taking the ball in the air in-goal. Possible mid-air tackle but nothing serious so it stays a drop-out. Long one too.

Kickoff now just minutes away. A quick preview - these two sides come in off the back of confidence-boosting wins. The Dragons put the Storm away comfortably last Monday while the Cowboys shot ahead early before holding out the much-fancied Rabbitohs. It will be the home side going in favourites on the back of consecutive wins and the hopeless away record of the Cowboys - the visitors are yet to win away this season. OK... here we go!

With the nuts and bolts out of the way, let's get down to the reason we're here. Dragons and rugby league legend, the immortal Reg Gasnier is being honoured today with an emotional pre-match presentation. Plenty of reflections from the TV broadcasters on air, while on the field, Ray Warren leads a presentation, including a tribute poem and video on the big screen.

LATE MAIL | The Dragons lose Dan Hunt and Dylan Farrell off the bench for this one - Jack Stockwell will start in the forwards with Mike Cooper dropping back to the bench. For the visiting Cowboys, Rory Kostjasyn at hooker is OUT, Anthony Mitchell moves to hooker. The new face on the bench is Zac Santo with John Asiata dropping off. Tautau Moga retains his wing spot and will debut for the club today.
