Remaining in first position despite suffering their first loss of the season against the Warriors across the Tasman, the Dragons will have their sights set on improving upon last season’s identical 6-1 start to the year despite a limited preparation.
Winning in tenacious fashion last Thursday against a willing, but flawed Canterbury side, the Roosters will be hopeful of repeating their defensive shutout while advancing their efforts on the scoreboard in an attempt to inflict consecutive losses upon the Dragons.
