Preview:
Dragons are sitting in at 4th with Panthers snapping at their heels and the Eels sit last but if they have a strong run home they could offload the spoon. 

This match is important for both sides to end the regular season on a positive note. 

The Dragons of late have hit a bit of a road block and the Eels have won 2 of their last 3 matches. 

Last time between these teams the Dragons scraped together a come from behind victory. 

Main Key Match Up: The halves
Again his match up is very important as both sets of halves on their day can match it with the best of them. 

Ben Hunt and Gareth Widdop need to orchestrate a victory here to gather some momentum going into the finals and to quiet their critics. 

While Mitchell Moses and Corey Norman need to continue what they’ve been doing the past month and play simple football with Moses guiding the team around with Corey Norman working his magic off he back of that. 

Prediction: Dragons by 4
I predict the Dragons will just get home past a desperate Eels side trying to offload the wooden spoon.
