The Sea Eagles recorded their first ever win over the Dragons at WIN Jubilee Oval. Having never beaten the joint venture in five attempts at the venue, the Sea Eagles managed to hold off a resurgent St George side to claim a 24-18 victory.
Leading 18-0 after 21 minutes, Geoff Toovey’s men let their advantage slip as the Dragons came back to level the scores at 18-a-piece.
But a piece of Jorge Taufua magic sealed the six-point victory as he showed enormous strength to score the match-winning try with ten minutes remaining.
Daly Cherry-Evans' kicking game was the difference that that. He put the Dragons back three under extreme pressure with challenging bombs and had them running back for the ball on numerous counts.
The Sea Eagles have the lowest winning percentage (33%) against the Dragons than they do against any other club in the competition.
The Sea Eagles have only managed one win from six starts at WIN Jubilee Oval. However, their only win came in their most recent meeting in round eight last year.
Sea Eagles back-rower Jamie Buhrer will play his 100th NRL game on Monday night.
Tom Symonds played in the centres the last time these two side’s met, replacing a suspended Steve Matai.
