Eels vs Dragons match preview
The Eels have had no problems scoring this year, amassing 76 points in 3 games. They have found themselves in tight finishes all the way through and would still be looking to tighten up the defensive side of the game, having let 70 in across 3 rounds.
The Dragons lost a bit of momentum last week with a heavy defeat and they are frequently breaking down on possession chains and turning the ball over.
The Eels look dangerous and will be capable of exploiting that regularly. We expect them to win their 3rd game of the season.
