That's game over here at Kogarah and the Dragons have done this so, so easily. 40-4!
Lomax slows it from right in front.
After going through about 6 pairs of hands, a spin from Norman and a pass inside to Hunt and the Dragons will hit 40!
BUNKER: WHAT WAS THAT? The Dragons are just dancing around and throwing to anyone and they look to have scored through Hunt!
OH MY. Rhyse Martin AGAIN loses it in a one-on-one strip!
NO TRY: Rava knocks it on, so no more points for the Dragons.
BUNKER: Checking for a knock-on here after a kick to Ravalawa on the wing
No luck from the right sideline, curling too far
THEY GET ONE! Reimis, the try-scoring freak this year, gets some points after an excellent pass from Cogger to Hopoate to Smith. Phew!
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.
The Dragons push it over touch and the Bulldogs are clock watching. I think we'll hit 40 here.
Converts his own try. He only just got on the field!
He was deemed to be JUST outside the ten when the ball was touched and he scores!
BUNKER: That came from nothing. Okunbor dropped it AGAIN from the bomb and Hunt gathers it, pops it to Lomax. Checking the offside.
NO TRY: Yeah, he tried hard, couldn't get it down, but probably should have passed it there, Martin.
BUNKER: Rhyse Martin tries to get it down, but is rolled over in his attempt. Turtled more than the guy from Entourage!
Dufty fumbles a little as he goes to play the ball. He says it wasn't his fault. Yeah, yeah.
It's fair to say that the Bulldogs are having a Barry(more) Crocker of a day with their hands! (Hi Drew!)
That's an easy one for Lafai.
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!
From the left sideline, Lafai curls it too far
Too easy for the Dragons! From the scrum, Dufty to Lafai to Pereira the the Dragons extend to 22!
The Dogs' hands are their own worst enemy today. Reimis Smith this time just 10 metres out from his line.
NO TRY: Ravalawa is ruled to have interfered with Okunbor as he went up, grabbing his arm.
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
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.
PENALTY Bulldogs: Meaney takes a great catch and the Dragons are accused of pushing Cogger into the catching player.
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
Oh boy. The youngster drops another one. The Bulldogs were in with a chance, but drops it cold again!
The Bulldogs trickle it in goal and Meaney gets a poor bounce, but gains a drop-out from the Dragons!
PENALTY Bulldogs: And now the Dogs get a play of the ball penalty. They're on the attack!
INTERCEPT: Okunbor redeemed himself there was a sneaky intercept down the Dragons end of the field
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.
A pushed pass from the Bulldogs and Okunbor drops is cold.
The second half is underway here! Can the Bulldogs hit back? Will it be a walk-over? Stay tuned!
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.
CHANGEOVER: The Dogs run it again on the last, but can't get over the Dragons line.
Corey kicks over the sideline on the full! It's a Norman classic!
He gets this one from the right touchline. Big score-line as we get close to half-time!
The Dragons are all over the Dogs here. Ravalawa double-steps down the sideline and gets around two Bulldogs.
BUNKER: Ravalawa looks to be over here. Just checking the touchline.
Lewis drops the ball in the tackle and puts his team under pressure 30 metres out. He's having a shocker.
Lafai can't his own goal but it's all one-sided here at Kogarah!
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!
Lost ball and Hunt runs 40 metres downfield! The Dragons are close!
PENALTY Bulldogs: Another one after a good run
PENALTY Bulldogs: The Dragons off-side from the scrum.
Big run from James Graham against his old club! Left players in his wake!
60 metres drop-out there on the fly from the Dragons. I think it was Norman?
Pereira deemed to have played the ball too fast in a tackle and it was kicked. Not sure how that works.
Slots it over easily from 30 out.
PENALTY Dragons: They're getting some big calls here. The Dogs stayed on too long again. Lafai will take a shot at goal.
HANDOVER: The Dogs ran it on the last there without seeing to realise. The Dragons start their set on their 40 metre line.
NO TRY: Hopoate is deemed to have knocked on first into Pereira and we don't even look at the grounding.
BUNKER: Pereira has put down a bomb and it looks like Harawire-Naera is close, but NO TRY on the field.
Straight over from Lafai.
BUNKER: Try called on field after Aitken went over.
Aitken dives over after some quick passing to the right from Hunt. Pretty easy in the end.
Try-saver from CHN on the line. The Dragons are real close here!
PENALTY Dragons: Ball stolen illegally. The Dragons are just 30 metres out.
Some good attack from the Dogs is undone by a blunder with the ball.
Lafai is bundled over touch after the Dragons went close down the left.
NO TRY: There is a PENALTY to the Dragons though for the obstruction.
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.
PENALTY Dragons - Too much attention in the tackle from the Dogs. Possibly a crusher from Graham/
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.
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.
Two completed sets a piece top start this match. The Dragons have the breeze behind them in the first half.
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?
