Lahrio Posted May 13, 2011 Share Posted May 13, 2011 Dragons HT/FT @ 2.00 (Sportsbet) The Dragons are playing ridiculously good at the moment. Their defence looks unbreakable at times, and this has shown with two shut-outs in recent weeks. I doubt they will be able to hold the Dogs scoreless, but I think they will at least be able to keep their attack under control. Soward will also be looking to put in another star performance to boost his Origin chances. To put things in perspective a bit, Thurston's try against the Dragons in the last few minutes last weekend marked the end of 172 minutes where the Dragons hadn't conceded a single try. 172 minutes! The Dragons haven't conceded a first half try since they played Newcastle in round 4. And one last stat, the match between these teams in Round 5 ended 25-6 (9-0 HT) to the Dragons. Brisbane -5.5pts @ 2.00 (Sportsbet) Brisbane 13+ @ 2.70 (Sportsbet) I've just been talking about the Dragons defence, well Brisbane aren't much worse. In fact, they are the second best team in the competition when it comes to defence. If we then take a look at the Panthers, they are the second worst attacking side in the competition. It makes me wonder where Penrith are going to get any points? I can only seeing this being a lop-sided affair, and while Brisbane didn't cover the 13+ when they met earlier in the season, they still won pretty easily.
