Great Defensive win for the Dragons

The St George Illawarra Dragons, were a team of two dimensions in their 20-18 victory over the Newcastle Knights.In  the first half, the Dragons were struggling to build pressure which is the norm for the Dragons as they grind teams down. What we saw this weekend, is when the team realised they were struggling, was to throw the ball around and really put the points on. On song, the ran out a 14-0, which was diminished slightly when the Knights scored in the final minutes prior to half-time to bring the half time score to 14-6.

The second half saw the Dragons defend for must of it. The Dragons scored first to put some points between, but the Knight being the team they are, from the town they come from, just never gave up. The Knights brought it back to 2 points, with plenty of time to win it, but the Dragons defence held out for the reigning Premiers to notch another win.
