Round 15 - WIN Stadium, Wollongong / Dharawal - Crowd: 11257

That'll be full time and Souths have salvaged some pride in the second half but this will be remembered as the game where the Dragons annihilated their opposition in the first 40. Next week is rep round, the week after that the Dragons will host the Raiders at Wollongong in what could end up being a great game, while Souths will host the Eels on Saturday Night.

Kicked by Zac Lomax.

Lomax nails the conversion, obviously

Dragons lead Dragons 32 - 0 Rabbitohs

Try: Dragons
Scored by Cody Ramsey. Kick to come.

It was inevitable, the Dragons have crossed again. Their entire team deserves 10 dally M points at this point. Cody Ramsey shrugs his way past Paulo and Ilias and gets 30 on the board in 28 minutes. This could be anything

Kicked by Zac Lomax.

Try: Dragons
Scored by Moses Suli. Kick to come.

Dragons lead Dragons 24 - 0 Rabbitohs

Try: Dragons
Scored by Mikaele Ravalawa. Kick to come.

They're saying there's a bit of a 2010 vibe around the joint at Wollongong tonight. This is the best attacking footy I've seen the Drags play in quite some time. Zac Lomax finds himself one on one with Campbell Graham, beats him, gets the flick to Mikaele Ravalawa who himself does well to get rid of Johnston. Phenomenal start to this one

Dragons lead Dragons 20 - 0 Rabbitohs

Set restart for SGI


Mathew Feagai breaks about 5 tackles on the first play and is brought down with about 10 metres to go to the line


Challenge unsuccessful as they deem Cook's knee dislodged the ball

Attempted by Zac Lomax.

Dragons lead Dragons 16 - 0 Rabbitohs

Try: Dragons
Scored by Jack de Belin. Kick to come.

It's a slaughter at the moment. The Dragons motioned as if they were going to spread it left, but Ben Hunt opts to go inside to a hard running Jack de Belin, who beats some poor tackle attempts on his way to the line.

Dragons lead Dragons 16 - 0 Rabbitohs

Dragons get a penalty coming out of trouble thanks to a nice dummy half run from the milestone man Andrew McCullough
