Lets forget about the ‘blip’ against the Broncs last Saturday night.

Three rounds to play and the team wearing the Big Red V are still in the Justin Hunt for a shot at playing semi final football. Given the mid-season meltdown, luck’s a fortune.

With the Sea Eagles swooping, there’s an ominous look about the boys from Brookvale.

Cue some pyrotechnics to blow the Panthers, and pesky Manly away.

Will there be fireworks? Let’s hope it is a cracker of a night against the Pennies. Not a fizzer, but a Frizzer in the form of big Tyson cart wheeling over Cartwright.

Where’s a Rocket Reddy when you need one? Tom thumb your nose at Jimmy Soward, who will be primed to fire against his ex team mates, and with Duges our sparkler at the back, there’s a potential gold mine of points to be scored.

Nigel Plum’s retirement and injury to Peter Wallace will disrupt the Panthers but they are lethal, especially around the ruck when slick Segeyaro lights up.

With nothing to play for, Penrith are sure to throw caution to the wind, as will the Tigers and the Titans in the coming weeks. The next three games will be anything but an easy Red V for victories.

Here’s to multiple throw downs, not shoulder charges, as the Dragons’ middle muscles up and defends its season on the line. Out wide things look lithe, not lethal, with Farrell’s return. Get better Gypsy.


With Benji back, JDB breaks his brief partnership with Widdop. Last week was a nifty experiment by Mary but Drew Hutchison should have played more minutes. He might be young, underdone and have possibly been overawed by playing in front of 35k spectators, but give the kid a crack.

The short fuse turnaround will either help or hinder the Dragons. Lose, and it will be blamed. Win, and supporters will enjoy the after party in the dressing shed as Captain Creagh leads “Oh when the Saints…”

Where’s there’s smoke, there’s a raging fire in the Dragons. So don’t hold a Roman candle for the boys, thinking they ‘might’ win tonight. They will, for it’s the last home game in 2015.

If you’re keen to witness Trent Merrin go out with a bang, thunder on down to WIN Stadium, and don’t forget to take your mate Guy Fawkes with you.

“Boom!”
