NRL Premiership - Round 01 - Melbourne Storm V St George Dragons - 07 March 2016 - AAMI Park, Melbourne, Vic - Ian Knight

St George Illawarra Dragons prop Dunamis Lui admits it will still be business as usual when he faces the North Queensland Cowboys at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.

Lui is well aware the upcoming opposition will be far from understrength noting that despite the loss of their Queensland Maroons representative players for the encounter they still boast a fierce forward-pack led by New Zealand international Jason Taumalolo.

The Toa Samoa international has also address the fact he and his teammates will need to learn and improve from the 34-24 loss to the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park last round.

“The Cowboys will field a good team whoever lines-up for them as they still have forwards in the likes of Jason Taumalolo and Ben Hannant in the middle,” said Lui.

“Nothing is going to change in our preparation as we’re still going to work hard and make sure we come out and get those two points.

“It’ll be good to play at home at WIN Stadium as we have only played the one game there so far this season and on that occasion we got the two points against the Penrith Panthers.

“We needed to hang in there against the Rabbitohs but unfortunately I think we threw the opportunity away.

“We had a lot of chances to really get on top of them but we let them off and they scored some easy tries off their kicks.

“We had worked a lot during the week including on our kick pressures but it was disappointing they scored their tries off kicks.

“We will learn from this leading into the Cowboys game and put in a strong performance in front of our home crowd.”
