Last Time Played: Sharks v Dragons

St George Illawarra Dragons v Cronulla Sharks
Round 19, 2011
WIN Jubilee Stadium


The Dragons overwhelmed the Sharks 38-8 at WIN Jubilee Stadium in Round 19 last year. 

The home side ran their opponents ragged in the opening 40 minutes, posting four unanswered tries for a 24-nil lead. The game was as good as gone when Michael Weyman crossed for their third try with just 18 minutes showing on the clock.
The Sharks rallied early in the second half, with tries to Josh Cordoba and Colin Best some cause for joy, before Jamie Soward and Jon Green crossed in the final 10 minutes.

The Sharks simply had no answer to the Dragons’ powerful running, conceding eight line-breaks and missing a whopping 54 tackles. Seven Dragons busted their defensive line, with Brett Morris achieving the feat twice.

The Dragons were extremely effective in defence – they made only five errors and managed to restrict Paul Gallen to ‘just’ 136 metres of territory.
