THE PREDICTION

St. George-Illawarra Dragons are coming off a heavy loss to the Canberra Raiders as there were signs of them easing off the gas last week as they ultimately have nothing to play for now. They face the Knights who have locked up a finals place but they will be keen to gain further momentum and finish as high up the ladder as possible. Much will depend on how motivated the Dragons are in this game as they could push the Knights close but it is difficult to have much confidence in that happening. The Knights should get the win but avoid the handicap here and consider adding them to an accumulator to add some value.
