Big crowed expected at this game at the SCG.
The Dragons’ fans travel and they’ll ensure the Souths fans know they’re there.
I’m not a fan of games being played on oval grounds as the game is played too far away from the fans.
Yes, it has a special magic about it, but you continually look at the screens to what is happening during the play.
The Dragons have a harder run home than most of the other top eight teams and they also can’t afford to lose a game or they might let the Panthers in.
They were unlucky against the Knights with some rough calls during the game which the coach let the media know about.
The Knights have lost a few games during the season by a few points and I guess this was the game they got on top of.
I wouldn’t say the Rabbitohs are a B Grade side without Sam Burgess, but he does make a massive difference when he’s in the side.
There have been other comments about the other Burgess brothers, Tom and George, being too big and not being able to run with variation which I agree with.
Souths are also missing a few key players which has made a huge impact in their season.
The Dragons should come away with a win this week.
They have a well-drilled team and if they can finish off the attacking plays, they’ll get a bag of points which was the only thing missing in their loss to the Knights.
