Jeff Dickinson-Fox reviews the campaign which saw Melbourne Storm crowned premiers in 2017.

After a Round 5 flogging most of us would rather forget, this week the Dragons head to "Fortress" Brookvale to take on the Sea Eagles. The 2006 NRL premiership is as close as we have seen in many years, and this match will be another tough game against a Manly side who are starting to play their way into some good form. Manly have proven fairly hard to beat at Brookvale over the past few years and the Dragons will need to have a much higher level of commitment and a tougher mental attitude to take the points in this one. With Shaun Timmins and Wes "The Fijian Flyer" Naiqama both returning from injury the Dragons are nearing a full strength side and will give a good account of themselves. The MBDS screening this week will once again be at the Grosvenor Hotel at East St Kilda. The screening will be held in the Sports Bar at 5:30pm Saturday on Fox Sports. Hope to see a big crowd there to catch all the action live!
What: Dragons v Sea Eagles
When: Saturday 15th April, 5:30pm
Where: Grosvenor Hotel 10 Brighton Road East St Kilda
Just to let you all know, we have also booked the Grosvenor for the annual Anzac Day clash between the Dragons and the Roosters. Further details will be coming in the following weeks but put it in your diary now as this will be a cracker of a game and we expect a good crowd at the Grosvenor for the match. Due to the importance of this match, our new sponsor OneStop Home Loans will be putting money on the bar which is a first for MBDS so come along and enjoy the day. Thanks to OneStop for their support!
