Round 5 – Match 1 Preview: St George Illawarra Dragons v Brisbane Broncos

The Broncos look set for an absolute thrashing in the opening match of Round 5 as they prepare to play the in-form Dragons at WIN Stadium.

Brisbane are coming off the back of three massive defeats including last week’s loss to the Roosters. Missing players left, right and centre the young and largely inexperienced team are feeling the pressure worse than ever.

They look in even more trouble later throughout the season as captain Darren Lockyer announced he would in fact play representative football this year.

St George lost their first game of the season last week when they faced off against the brilliant Melbourne Storm, but look to have this one in the bag.

Only the most devoted of Brisbane fans would touch them this week, even at the incredible odds of $6.75, but as we have seen time and time again throughout the years, when backed into a corner teams can cause some of the most sensational upsets.
