Dragons Squeak Home, Broncos Romp Home

Friday Night saw two brave performances from the winning teams. In Qld, the loyal fans witnessed an incredibly defensive effort from the Broncos, as they repelled a Titans team who continually held better field position and possession. The Broncos clawed to the front on the back of a dodgy sin-bin call on Matt Rogers and were never headed as the Broncos romped home 24-10. Brisbane found a way to bomb two tries as well, as they came home so strongly. Their is a real feel that this Broncos side, could do something special this year... and on tonights performance you would have to agree.

In Sydney, traditional rivals St George and Souths Sydney played out a cracker. Souths started the ball rolling with a simple try to Roy Asotasi, to lead 6-0 and then Brett Morris scored to make the game 6-4. The score alternated until it hit 12-12 in the 59th minute with a penalty goal to the Dragons. Five minutes later, Chris Sandow slots over a field goal to make it 13-12. The Dragons scored again through Jason Nightingale to make the match winning final score line in the 71st minute.

There will be few who will say the better team won. Souths made far too many errors in attack to effectively build pressure over the longer period. There were many occasions the Dragons were buggered, but it always seemed to be a Souths error that alleviated the pressure.

On another note, don't you just hate it when the player you backed for first try scorer, scores second. Yes, I should be used to it, shouldn't I.
