- St. George Illawarra Dragons lost their third game in a row after an extremely poor performance against Wests Tigers last week. They will be desperate to get back to winning ways as they host the bottom of the table for the Canterbury Bulldogs.
- The alarm bells will ring here with defeat if it hasn’t already, but as the pressure on the Dragons increased to get a victory, their three-quarters line has been decimated, making her look very different on Max and Mathew Feagai on the wings.
From 13: Watene-Zelezniak, Cotric, Hopoate, Allan, Meaney, Averillo, Flanagan, Thompson, S. Katoa, Seumanufagai, Elliott, Smith, Waddell- Exchange: Deitz, Atoni, Doorey – Reserves: Lewis, T. All, Ogden
Not available: Jayden Okunbor (injured), Christian Crichton (injured), Raymond Faitala-Mariner (injured), Jeremy Marshall-King (injured), Josh Jackson (injured), Jack Hetherington (suspended), Dylan Napa (injured)
- Canterbury Bulldogs couldn’t build on their first win of the season as they were comfortably beaten by Parramatta Eels last week. However, this is a competition that if they try to get off the foot of the ladder they feel they can win.
- The Bulldogs are now 1-7 after that loss, but with St. George scoring no more than 14 points in their last three games, Canterbury’s fighting attack may still get the job, though they’ll be desperate to post more than more 18 own points, in total they have to surpass this year.
St. George Illawarra Dragons and Canterbury Bulldogs will both be desperate to claim victory in this competition, but it could be a tough watch as the pair battle for form. The Dragons have lost three in a row, which is far from how they started the campaign, while the Bulldogs have only lost one out of eight so far this year. Neither team looked too hot with the ball, and that should result in a competition that scores less than 42.5. But it might also be worth taking the Bulldogs with a start of +10.5 if the game is going as badly as expected.
