St George’s decline has been a hard one to take if you’re a fan of the Dragons. They looked capable of going all the way having sat at the top of the ladder for much of the season but now the Dragons face a fight to end the season with a home play-off game. They can still make the top 4 but need other results to work in their favour whilst they can also finish as low as eighth. A defeat here is likely to see them surrender the home game they currently hold which could mean a sharp exit from the finals. They head to Newcastle this week who will be hoping to end the season on a high in front of their own fans and after the Dragons’ disastrous display last week, they can take advantage and do just that.
