80min

That's game over here at Kogarah and the Dragons have done this so, so easily. 40-4!

80min

Conversion: Dragons
Kicked by Zac Lomax.

Lomax slows it from right in front.

Dragons lead Dragons 40 - 4 Bulldogs
80min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Ben Hunt. Kick to come.

After going through about 6 pairs of hands, a spin from Norman and a pass inside to Hunt and the Dragons will hit 40!

Dragons lead Dragons 38 - 4 Bulldogs
79min

BUNKER: WHAT WAS THAT? The Dragons are just dancing around and throwing to anyone and they look to have scored through Hunt!

79min

OH MY. Rhyse Martin AGAIN loses it in a one-on-one strip!

79min

NO TRY: Rava knocks it on, so no more points for the Dragons.

79min

BUNKER: Checking for a knock-on here after a kick to Ravalawa on the wing

77min

Conversion: Bulldogs
Attempted by Rhyse Martin.

No luck from the right sideline, curling too far

Dragons lead Dragons 34 - 4 Bulldogs
77min

Try: Bulldogs
Scored by Reimis Smith. Kick to come.

THEY GET ONE! Reimis, the try-scoring freak this year, gets some points after an excellent pass from Cogger to Hopoate to Smith. Phew!

Dragons lead Dragons 34 - 4 Bulldogs
75min

OH NOOOO. The Bulldogs nearly scored. A great offload from Chris Smith to Cogger, who then grubbers to his wingers, but the Dragons knock it over the dead ball. I feel bad for them.

74min

The Dragons push it over touch and the Bulldogs are clock watching. I think we'll hit 40 here.

72min

Conversion: Dragons
Kicked by Zac Lomax.

Converts his own try. He only just got on the field!

Dragons lead Dragons 34 - 0 Bulldogs
72min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Zac Lomax. Kick to come.

He was deemed to be JUST outside the ten when the ball was touched and he scores!

Dragons lead Dragons 32 - 0 Bulldogs
72min

BUNKER: That came from nothing. Okunbor dropped it AGAIN from the bomb and Hunt gathers it, pops it to Lomax. Checking the offside.

70min

NO TRY: Yeah, he tried hard, couldn't get it down, but probably should have passed it there, Martin.

70min

BUNKER: Rhyse Martin tries to get it down, but is rolled over in his attempt. Turtled more than the guy from Entourage!

69min

Dufty fumbles a little as he goes to play the ball. He says it wasn't his fault. Yeah, yeah.

66min

It's fair to say that the Bulldogs are having a Barry(more) Crocker of a day with their hands! (Hi Drew!)

66min

Conversion: Dragons
Kicked by Timoteo Lafai.

That's an easy one for Lafai.

Dragons lead Dragons 28 - 0 Bulldogs
65min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Ben Hunt. Kick to come.

WOW. The Bulldogs' Kerrod Holland pushed a pass and it went to ground, Ben Hunt picks it up and scores the easiest try you'll see!

Dragons lead Dragons 26 - 0 Bulldogs
60min

Conversion: Dragons
Attempted by Timoteo Lafai.

From the left sideline, Lafai curls it too far

Dragons lead Dragons 22 - 0 Bulldogs
59min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Jordan Pereira. Kick to come.

Too easy for the Dragons! From the scrum, Dufty to Lafai to Pereira the the Dragons extend to 22!

Dragons lead Dragons 22 - 0 Bulldogs
58min

The Dogs' hands are their own worst enemy today. Reimis Smith this time just 10 metres out from his line.

56min

NO TRY: Ravalawa is ruled to have interfered with Okunbor as he went up, grabbing his arm.

56min

BUNKER: Okunbor knocked on a kick (again) and the Dragon scrambled to score, but we're looking at the interference on the player in the air

54min

The Dogs attack, but their last tackle option isn't great. A dribble in-goal from Meaney goes too deep and it'll be 7 to the Dragons.

52min

PENALTY Bulldogs: Meaney takes a great catch and the Dragons are accused of pushing Cogger into the catching player.

51min

The Bulldogs are trying to offload a bit more, making a few extra metres here and there. A decent kick from Cogger on the last finds touch and field position

48min

Oh boy. The youngster drops another one. The Bulldogs were in with a chance, but drops it cold again!

47min

The Bulldogs trickle it in goal and Meaney gets a poor bounce, but gains a drop-out from the Dragons!

46min

PENALTY Bulldogs: And now the Dogs get a play of the ball penalty. They're on the attack!

45min

INTERCEPT: Okunbor redeemed himself there was a sneaky intercept down the Dragons end of the field

44min

FORWARD PASS: Oooh, a close one. Ravalawa looked like he was in, but the final pass from Dufty is ruled forward. Pretty harsh on that one.

43min

A pushed pass from the Bulldogs and Okunbor drops is cold.

41min

The second half is underway here! Can the Bulldogs hit back? Will it be a walk-over? Stay tuned!

40min

That's half-time here at Kogarah and the Dragons have been impressive. Three tries in a fast half. A bunch of bad penalties and errors from the Dogs have been their biggest enemy.

39min

CHANGEOVER: The Dogs run it again on the last, but can't get over the Dragons line.

38min

Corey kicks over the sideline on the full! It's a Norman classic!

36min

Conversion: Dragons
Kicked by Timoteo Lafai.

He gets this one from the right touchline. Big score-line as we get close to half-time!

Dragons lead Dragons 18 - 0 Bulldogs
36min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Mikaele Ravalawa. Kick to come.

The Dragons are all over the Dogs here. Ravalawa double-steps down the sideline and gets around two Bulldogs.

Dragons lead Dragons 16 - 0 Bulldogs
35min

BUNKER: Ravalawa looks to be over here. Just checking the touchline.

34min

Lewis drops the ball in the tackle and puts his team under pressure 30 metres out. He's having a shocker.

30min

Conversion: Dragons
Attempted by Timoteo Lafai.

Lafai can't his own goal but it's all one-sided here at Kogarah!

Dragons lead Dragons 12 - 0 Bulldogs
30min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Timoteo Lafai. Kick to come.

Turning defence into attack! Hunt stole the ball from Rhyse Martin, ran down the field, spread it to the left, Norman to Lafai and he dives over!

Dragons lead Dragons 12 - 0 Bulldogs
30min

Lost ball and Hunt runs 40 metres downfield! The Dragons are close!

29min

PENALTY Bulldogs: Another one after a good run

29min

PENALTY Bulldogs: The Dragons off-side from the scrum.

28min

Big run from James Graham against his old club! Left players in his wake!

26min

60 metres drop-out there on the fly from the Dragons. I think it was Norman?

25min

Pereira deemed to have played the ball too fast in a tackle and it was kicked. Not sure how that works.

22min

Penalty Goal: Dragons
Kicked by Timoteo Lafai.

Slots it over easily from 30 out.

Dragons lead Dragons 8 - 0 Bulldogs
21min

PENALTY Dragons: They're getting some big calls here. The Dogs stayed on too long again. Lafai will take a shot at goal.

20min

HANDOVER: The Dogs ran it on the last there without seeing to realise. The Dragons start their set on their 40 metre line.

19min

NO TRY: Hopoate is deemed to have knocked on first into Pereira and we don't even look at the grounding.

18min

BUNKER: Pereira has put down a bomb and it looks like Harawire-Naera is close, but NO TRY on the field.

16min

Conversion: Dragons
Kicked by Timoteo Lafai.

Straight over from Lafai.

Dragons lead Dragons 6 - 0 Bulldogs
16min

BUNKER: Try called on field after Aitken went over.

15min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Euan Aitken. Kick to come.

Aitken dives over after some quick passing to the right from Hunt. Pretty easy in the end.

Dragons lead Dragons 4 - 0 Bulldogs
15min

Try-saver from CHN on the line. The Dragons are real close here!

14min

PENALTY Dragons: Ball stolen illegally. The Dragons are just 30 metres out.

13min

Some good attack from the Dogs is undone by a blunder with the ball.

11min

Lafai is bundled over touch after the Dragons went close down the left.

10min

NO TRY: There is a PENALTY to the Dragons though for the obstruction.

10min

BUNKER: The Dragons are close this time. A little chip on the line and Lafai is close. No try on field, but checking illegal blocking.

9min

PENALTY Dragons - Too much attention in the tackle from the Dogs. Possibly a crusher from Graham/

8min

A mini-break from Marshall-King sets up an attacking raid for the Dogs. A little kick from Lewis is knocked on my Holland in the end. Dragons feed, 10 out.

6min

The Dragons break the pattern with the first stoppage of play, a kick goes too deep in-goal and the Bulldogs will have 7 tackles.

3min

Two completed sets a piece top start this match. The Dragons have the breeze behind them in the first half.

1min

The Dragons get first use of the ball, running towards the Northern end of the ground.

We're here on a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Kogarah for this Round 5 between between the Dragons and Bulldogs. Both teams are pretty keen for this win and haven't been that impressive in the 2019 season so far. Both teams 1-17. Will we see another Golden Point game?
