Who will win Dragons vs Panthers?

For St George Illawarra, this is the first trip back to their home at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium since 3 June last year. Coach Anthony Griffin would be pretty pleased with most of their work last week in a strong win over the Warriors.

The Panthers overcame the loss of star Nathan Cleary and didn't miss a beat in dismantling Manly. They will again be without Cleary but have shown the depth that wins you premierships, which they are every chance to do again.

The Dragons had a couple of lapses last week after taking control early and they can't afford to do that against this Panthers team.

Penrith should salute for the second time this season.
