I think these guys must have been watching some AFL at the SCG while waiting for the kickoff. The kickoff was delayed due to spectator entry problems.

Is it a try for the Dragons?

This series of photos shows Dragons second rower Darren Treacy scoring a try.

 

Photo 1 - There's the ball Darren!

 

Photo 2 - Touchdown!

 

Photo 3 - Swimming breaststroke in the middle of the SFS?

 

Photo 4 - I scored. Hooray for me!

 

Photo 5 - Well done mate! 

 

Well, I have 3 lotto numbers! 1, 3 & 13.

Nathan Blacklock confirmed his title as leading try scorer with another try.

A League Week poll had Roosters skipper Brad Fittler as the most over rated player in the NRL. Unfortunately for the Dragons and fortuntately for the Roosters, Freddie had a classic game.

It was certainly a tough game up front with no prisoners taken. 
Nathan Blacklock celebrated another try scoring record without his trademark flip.
Is Dragons trainer and former legend Nathan Brown having an on field chat with referee Bill Harrigan?
"Did you rate me as the hardest referee in the NRL to deal with?"
Some trainers appear to be getting more game time than some players. If the trainer is a former player like Dragons trainer Nathan Brown, it is more noticeable.
The Roosters were expected to be an easy target for the Dragons based on recent form but that was not the case.
Praying isn't going to help you, Jason Hooper!

"I don't think that this is a good idea mate!" Jason Ryles (10) receives a tug of the jumper from Andrew Hart.

It certainly was a wet end to the match, more than these photos indicate. These photos were taken as the players leave the field. Most spectators changed location when the rain, hail, thunder and lightening came.
