Dragons : World Club Champions

The St George-Illawarra Dragons are the World Club Champions, disposing of the English Premiers, the Wigan Warriors 21-15. The game was a wonderful advertisement for rugby league as defence was the ultimate difference, as the Dragons kept the Warriors scoreless in the second half and scored one themselves, while a field goal from Jamie Soward after a long break from Brett Morris in the 70th minutes proved the points difference

The Wigan Warriors started well with a well rehearsed kick focusing on Jamie Soward was plucked over Soward's head by former Knights winger George Carmont for the Warriors to score a shock 6-0 lead. The Warriors continued then to take penalty kicks at goal when in range, and took the lead out to 8-0, before the Dragons snapped back with the first of Brett Morris's tries.

A Wigan field goal, right on half-time broke a 14 all deadlock and allowed the Warriors to lead into oranges.
