What a fantastic week of sport we had served up to us last week. The mighty Blues get up on Wednesday night with a field goal, the Socceroos head off to Germany with a win over European Champions Greece, and then the Dragons smack Newcastle on their home turf! After the drubbing the Knights gave us at WIN stadium earlier this year, the Dragons must have been fired up for revenge and that was exactly what they dished out. On the back of a fairly good kicking game and a number of Newcastle errors, the Dragons went to the break with a 20-6 lead and were never headed in the second half. It's great to see what this football team is capable when they are on their game. Let's hope we see plenty more of that sort of form this year. This week's match is another Sydney grudge match, against the Parramatta Eels on Friday night. This will be the Dragons first home at Oki Jubilee and they will be expecting a sellout crowd to cheer the team home.
Our screening this week is back at SteakOut at Crown Casino at 8:30pm. After the problems with Telstra which Crown experienced for the State of Origin, all was resolved for the telecast last Friday at Crown which was fine. We have been assured by the management we won't have any issues going forward and we will continue to use Crown for the Friday night and Sunday Channel Nine matches.
