The line should be bigger in this game but for the fact that the Dragons have a lot of players backing up from Origin and International games over the weekend. The impact from these games won’t be as damaging as a normal Origin game played on the Wednesday. Frizell is out with Host slotting into the second row while De Belin, Vaughan & Hunt came through unscathed (well Hunt was scathed by Queensland fans). Widdop and Graham got back on Monday and had Dragons staff with them on the journey.
WIN Stadium is such a great homeground for the Dragons, winning all games there this year. The Eels come in not knowing what number to put on Moses and Norman, a coach under pressure and a leaky defence.
I’m taking the Dragons in this one.
