Yes The Mighty Bears are top of the table and determined to stay there as they travel down to WIN Stadium to challenge the Dragons in both Premier League and Jersey Flegg. Watch the sparks fly in as the Bears come up against a former team mate from Norths' 2004 semi-final Jersey Flegg team centre Lee Te Maari, who has been named in the Dragons' Premier League team. Rumor also has it that the Dragons will ensure a beefed up forward pack including former Roosters player Willie Tupou.
However the Bears'even blend of skillful backs such as John Russell and Scott Webb, and steam rolling forwards will again be boosted by Melbourne Storm players Ian Donnelly (pictured), Jamie Feeney and Jeremiah Pai.
Make sure you're there to see the result!
