St George Illawarra Dragons Form


The Dragons exploded out of the blocks this season but it has been very much a downhill slide over recent months.

The Dragons won back-to-back games against Canberra Raiders and the New Zealand Warriors to hold onto their place in the top 8, but have been comfortably run of steam. They have lost their last five games.

Sydney Roosters Form


The Roosters season has been a little stop-start, as they’ve struggled to kick on after scoring back-to-back wins several times this year. 

The Roosters won four straight games against Canterbury, North Queensland, Newcastle and Parramatta, before a narrow loss to Penrith two weeks ago. Last weekend the Roosters scored a one point victory over the Broncos.
