Willis hat-trick lifts NYC Dragons to big win
The young Dragons have recorded a huge 36-12 win over the Gold Coast Titans at UOW Jubilee Oval, Kogarah on Saturday afternoon.

Within the next nine minutes the Dragons halfback had a hat-trick following nice efforts in the 14th and 18th minutes.
Dylan Morris extended the Dragons' advantage to 24 in the 34th minute, which remained until half-time.
Brayden Gallagher continued on where the Dragons left off in the first half with his maiden NYC four-pointer in the 48th minute.
Morris had his second in the 53rd minute following a winding run, while Lomax kicked a penalty goal eight minutes later to put the Red V ahead of by 36.
Three tries in the final 12 minutes from Titans trio AJ Brimson, Tre Williams and Rory Lillis made the score more respectably for the away side, in what proved to be a 24-point win for the Dragons.
