I'm the one who is whistling dixie now but still the flame burns within.
26 -zip is not pretty and some of the attacking play against the Broncs was down right ugly but there is reason to be upbeat: starting with the 3:2:1 to players on a losing side.
Duges scoops the points' pool and this match was no different: 245 Run Metres, 5 Tackle Busts – more than any player on either side. With little petrol left in his tank, it's a wonder he had any tears to shed.
I'll leave the legend for now and instead heap praise on other Dragons of distinction.
3. The armour-plated, arm-wrestling armful that is Ah Mau. Commentators seldom sing the praises of this giant with a bum fluff beard. He's a workhorse, packhorse and a prop with propulsion. Amen to Ah Mau
2. Euan Beauty Aitken. 5 Tackle Busts – equaling Duges'effort. Aitken's getting better with every run His dual with Jack Reid was top viewing. His try saver, top shelf. The No3 on his back is at least one certainty in these tumultuous times..
1. Typhoon Tyson. Frizell runs with the intensity of one-time Dragon Gordon Tallis. If only the others would take a sprig out of his book. Absolutely love to watch this bloke play: win, lose or draw.
Two losses north of the border is not ideal but there 's one match remaining. That one against the tight ones, we will win.
If you're still in need of something to soften the pain of the team's current catastrophe in Queensland, settle in tonight and watch the Rabbitohs keep the Rooster henned in and on the bottom of the table. No Joke!
