    Jamie Soward and the St George Illawarra Dragons will travel to Skilled Park this afternoon to face up against the Gold Coast Titans with both teams reaching for form after two straight losses. Join us for live scores and commentary from 3.00pm AEST.

    Only one win separates these two teams on the table entering Round 9, but the 6th-placed Titans are the favourites to take care of the 12th-placed Dragons at home.

    St George will likely have to generate a few more opportunities in this game to get past the home side, who are averaging 20 points per game, while the Dragons are languishing with just below 15 points per game, third lowest in the league.

    Last week the Titans lost a close game by one point to the Warriors in New Zealand, although centre Jamal Idris impressed with two tries.

    The Dragons were outclassed by Manly, who opened up a 14-point lead by halftime and held on to win 24-18.

    The Dragons are focused on getting a good start this afternoon, as emphasised by coach Steve Price in the media this week.

    Another big storyline this week was the Dragons signing of oft-troubled fullback Josh Dugan, who was sacked by the Raiders in March due to off-field issues and was re-registered by the NRL just this week.

    Dugan’s presence may soften the loss of top winger Brett Morris, who’s out after recent knee surgery.

    The Titans, in contrast, are getting key players back from injury this week, with wingers David Mead (broken jaw) and Kevin Gordon (hamstring) returning from extended absences.

      FULLTIME St George Dragons 14 – 15 Gold Coast Titans

      The home side wins a nailbiter! Soward had a chance right at the death to keep his team in it but it fell about 10 metres short.

      Strong second half by the Titans, they could well have had a much bigger margin of victory if Zidwell didn’t have the disallowed try.

      Lots of mistakes from both sides kept it close, and plenty to improve on. Turned out to be a good decision by Sezer to take an early field goal and put the pressure on St George, who couldn’t provide the answer.

      80′ St George Dragons 14 – 15 Gold Coast Titans

      Dragons take possession on their 40 with 40 seconds remaining.

      Soward is in position, but his kick falls short, he didn’t have enough time!

      Titans trying to take a slow set here, but they’ve knocked on!

      One more chance for the Dragons, can they get into field goal range?

      79′ St George Dragons 14 – 15 Gold Coast Titans

      Good run from Quinlan to take them past halfway. Good set by the Dragons, 52 gained, but a knock on by Prior on the last!

      The St George bench just went from hopeful to devastated.

      Knock on by Taylor! Titans had a chance there to kick another point, Dragons have to get the ball all the way down the other end.

      77′ St George Dragons 14 – 15 Gold Coast Titans

      Titans now with possession moving over halftway, they’ll be looking to waste time now. And Vidot obliges with a knock-on from the bomb.

      He’s fine.

      Soward looked to take a Golden Point from around 35 out but it was blocked by the Titans at the line.
