Drangons vs Panthers
  • Friday night ‘s early game has a bit to look forward to
  • Dragons need to lift but can they?
  • Panthers offer some value at the price

The Dragons were really disappointing against Wests. They bombed tries, play impatient footy and looked like a team that was not confident or cohesive. Hunt, Norman and Luke were all well below their best, while Lomax was shocking at times.

But it was a team loss, with the Dragons conceding over 600 metre more than Wests and only getting 40% of possession.

While the Panthers were one of the big surprise packets in Round 1, defeating the Premiers in impressive fashion. Clearly confirmed he is going to be a dominant player in the NRL in 2020 and Koroisau was impressive. Tamou and Yeo were awesome, as were the Panthers wingers. If Mansour and To’o can continue that form, they will provide a powerhouse combination.

But the short Panthers wingers could be vulnerable to the bomb, with Lomax – who has been dropped to the win – a clear target this weekend.

The Panthers play the ball speed was great against the Roosters, who are notorious for slowing down the play the ball. The Dragons defence was flaky at times against an under-strength Wests line up.

The Dragons have brought back Duffy to 1, with Lomax replacing the injured Ravawala. This is just more disruption to a team that was already playing disjointed footy.

I think the Panthers are back in 2020 and the Dragons have looked poor in their recent outings. At 1.60 I think the Panthers offer some value to get the win.

Predicted Sore
Panthers 26
Dragons 16
