When: 19:35 | Saturday 15/04/2017
Where: WIN Stadium
Watch: Channel 9 and Fox League – Live from 7:30pm.
Everyone is still writing the Dragons off but they shouldn’t.
The Dragons’ forwards were the biggest difference against Manly with de Belin, Vaughan and Frizell working together and sharing the workload which is giving them a lot more power at the closing stages of the each game.
Losing Thurston for only 10 minutes was a loss for the Cowboys but losing him for more games is devastating.
The Cowboys would have trained for this during the off-season and Green will come up with a game plan to test the Dragons even without Thurston.
They have to play differently now as Thurston normally floats whereever he wants during the game looking for breaks and options.
Morgan will step up and try to do the Thurston job. He won’t have the same impact, but will do enough while Thurston is missing.
No one can do what Thurston does.
The Dragons in a close one.
