Dragons Squeak Home, Broncos Romp Home
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.
