Well, the footy season is underway for 2012.There is much excitement in the office and at home with a few devoted Dragons fans.Not my cup of tea with all the bone-crunching tackles and over zealous cuddles that occur on the field.However apparently this is shaping up to be a great season with 7 new coaches and a few of the big name players having switched clubs.Nothing like giving the pot a bit of a stir.
The Dragons were abysmal against the inform Bulldogs on Saturday night at ANZ stadium.There was no fire as Josh Morris destroyed the Dragons, including his brother, in a 30-4 whitewash.The Bulldogs defence far too strong for a illdisciplined St George side.
The Titans were overun in front of 11378 fans in a 24-12 loss against the Raiders.The Raiders surged to a 12-0 lead by the 20th min but the Titans fought back levelling the scores just before half-time.The Raiders had all the possession in the second half with some brilliant defence and stole the lead back in the 52nd minute when McCrone took them to a 18-12 advantage.Although the Raiders were denied 2 tries in the closing minutes of the game, this probably would not have changed the result , although it did cost them any chance to level the scores.
Other results included :
Manly 22 Wests 18
Brisbane 26 North Queensland 28
Cronulla 6 Newcastle 18
Penrith 18 Roosters 0
Melbourne 24 Souths 10
Tonights game Parramatta against the New Zealand warriors should be a great game.Jarroyd Hayne is back but Hindmarsh will miss the game tonight recovering from a nasty virus.
