St George Illawarra Dragons vs New Zealand Warriors Preview
The Warriors will be desperate to avoid a third straight loss on Sunday when they meet the red-hot Dragons at Jubilee.
Injuries and some awful luck played a large part in last week’s agonizing one-point loss to Manly, but head coach Nathan Brown does have reason to feel confident considering his side has won four straight over St George dating back to 2018.
Of course, a lot has changed since then.
The Red V has been dominant over the last month with four straight wins over the Cowboys, Sea Eagles, Knights and Eels.
Last week’s victory largely boiled down to another big game from the forward line, but it’s also worth noting the Dragons’ defence has held their last four opponents to under 20 points.
Speaking of the forward line, the Warriors look to be at a severe disadvantage going forward now that Addin Fonua-Blake has been ruled out with a fractured patella.
That can only spell bad news against a Dragons side that now ranks top five in points scored.
Having also covered the line in four of their five games so far, the Saints should keep on marching this week.
