Minor Premiership for Dragons: Finals Bound Raiders

At a mates 40th last night and missed much of the footy, but was stoked to hear the results.The Dragons sealed the Minor Premiership with their hard fought 22-18 victory over the Newcastle Knights. The Dragons led 22-0, and a spirited Knights comeback, spurred on by the last chance saloon, gave the Dragons a scare as the Knights clawed back to 26-18.

The Cowboys delivered their end of season gift to the Brisbane Broncos, by throwing in the white towel against a white-hot Raiders 48-4. The win puts the Raiders in eighth spot and with a positive +4 on their points for and against, are looking at a near certain top 8 spot. The Broncos now need to beat the Raiders by 30 points, for the Broncos to sneak into the finals. In the other game, the Sharks upset the Gold Coast Titans 30-16. The loss won't harm the Titans, as a legitimate force for the finals, as it should galvanise them.
