Can the fact of 7 missing origin players and the greatest ground of all stop the Penriff juggernaut?
And screw the Victorian ALP for not being able to watch a live game at AAMI Park this Saturday

I remember about 19 years ago, that WT lost a game to the baby ponies in a similar situation. Brisbane were missing 8 or 9 players and still won.

Why the heck are the Dragons telling Dufty to look elsewhere beyond this year?

He's still clearly one of the only Dragons players with class

Dufty is not a fullback. He's a 5/8. He's played 5/8 all the way up to NRL. His positional play and defence is very mediocre for a fullback. Not the worst but he's not great.
He's playing fullback because they dropped a lot of money on Corey Norman to play 5/8 and they're too stubborn to admit that Parra sold them a pup.
Dufty could play 5/8 tomorrow for a team like Canterbury or Broncos and they'd improve out of sight.
As to the dragons, they haven't believed him to be a capable fullback for a couple of years now but they haven't found anyone better.
Why you'd dump a player before you found a capable replacement is beyond me. They were hoping for Lomax to do it but he was worse. They were hoping for Ramsey to do it but he was even worse than Lomax. They told Dufty to fu** off thinking they were going to sign Nicho Hynes. Sharks and Nicho said lol to that.
Dragons are a rabble. 2nd best junior nursery in NSW and they pissed away a golden generation of talent. They had a squad in the juniors 5 years ago that was the equal or better of the penrith squad. One squad got squandered by poor management and tribal in-fighting on the board while the other was turned into a table topping unit.
