We take a look at Friday nights first NRL match between St George Illawarra Dragons and the Cronulla Sharks. Both teams are heading into the match with good form and despite what the odds suggest it should be a close match. View our tips and preview below.
When: 18:00 | Friday 12/05/2017
Where: UOW Jubilee Oval
Watch: Fox Sports 2 – Live coverage from 6pm.
Both teams are from the same area and the fans just get into each other.
It’s a great day at the football when these two play each other at Jubilee Oval.
While the Dragons have lost back-to-back games, the wheels haven’t fallen off completely, as they still have the engine pumping hard with the Dragons’ forwards.
The Dragons will struggle without Widdop and have no polish when finishing their attack at the moment, so they might be running on the spare.
With the Dragons missing a few of their key players, I don’t see them scoring many points and the Sharks aren’t usually a high scoring team.
So I do see it being similar to the first time they met this year, which was a low scoring affair.
It will be a close game and the Dragons will do everything they can to win for their fans at home.
St George Illawarra Dragons at $3.05
