The Dragons failed to make it three wins on the spin last weekend as they narrowly lost out in a tight scrap with the Sharks.

But again it was improved performance levels from them. Their next challenge as the 12th round of action in the NRL kicks off, is facing the Rabbitohs.

South Sydney have just lost their way a little bit, going down in their last two fixtures. Can they bounce back as they have the head to head form over the Dragons?

St George Illawarra Dragons Preview – Dragons competitive

It was only a loss by a four point margin that the St George Illawarra Dragons suffered against the Sharks last weekend.

That saw them just miss on a hat trick of wins that have taken the Sea Eagles and Bulldogs out in their two previous matches.

It is a W4 L7 record that the Dragons have recorded this season but they have been scoring consistently well.

They have not produced at least 22 points in each of their last four fixtures so do warrant a little bit of respect in this contents, even though they are the 29/20 underdogs* (odds taken 22:12 GMT Tuesday, 28th July 2020).

Our betting prediction:
Dragons to win

On paper this should be a close match up because there is not much to split the two teams in the key statistics.

The only notable difference is that the Dragons have conceded 3 points more per game on average than the Rabbitohs have done.

The Dragons did slip up in both of last season’s meetings against the Rabbitohs

But three of the Dragon’s four wins in the NRL this season have happened in home fixtures and they can keep their top eight outsider hopes burning with points in this one.


South Sydney Rabbitohs Preview – Rabbitohs slip again

A loss in this one would send South Sydney spiralling to a three match losing streak in the NRL.

They ended the last round of action in 10th spot in the division and their top 8 prospects have taken a hit.

It was a 12-18 loss against the Raiders that the Rabbitohs suffered last weekend, which followed a tense 2-point defeat against the Knights.

It is a W5 L6 record that the Rabbitohs are currently on now after the latest setback.

The head to head between these two is very tight as it stands in favour of the Dragons 17-16 since 1998.

However, it is a four match winning streak that South Sydney are currently on against the Dragons.

Two for the last three have been victories by four points or less so again, this may be tight.

There will be question marks over the current away form of the Rabbitohs as they are W1 L5 in their designated road games in this campaign.

The average winning margin that they have produced in their success is 8 points for the campaign.

Interestingly the average losing margin for both of these teams this season is 15 points.

The bookmakers recognise that this is likely to be tight with the Rabbitohs -4 for even money in the handicap line* (odds taken 22:12 GMT Tuesday, 28th July 2020).

We think that there is a sniff of a chance for the Dragons to snap their losing streak against the Rabbitohs in this one.
