Dragons 30 The defeated Knights 12

Game Review:
Sunday afternoon seen the Knight travel to down to Wollongong to face the top of the table Dragons and it was the Knights who crossed the line first but it come at a cost with Moga crossing the line but it's believed he done his ACL in scoring the try.

The Dragons then scored the 3 tries in a row through Sims, MacDonald and Aitken due to some lovely work from the Dragons half and 5/8, Ben Hunt and Gareth Widdop.

The Knights were next to cross the white strip from a lovely inside ball by Pearce to Heighington for his first try in Knights colours.

A penalty goal by Widdop seen the Dragons take a 20-12 lead going into the sheds.

The Dragons came out firing in the second half resulting in Ah Mau scoring his first try since 2014 and MacDonald getting a second within the first 18 of the second half.

As far as points go, that was the end of it as both sides traded set for set without any side able to apply any real pressure.
