Coming up against the last-placed Eels while sitting in first place themselves, the Dragons were almost on the receiving end of a monumental upset if it wasn’t for a last gasp try from Matt Dufty.
With four minutes remaining and with the ball frantically thrown around on the last tackle, Gareth Widdop put a kick through the line for Matt Dufty whose blistering speed was too much for the tired Eels defence.
The Dragons scored two tries in three minutes to snatch a 20-18 win despite a big representative toll hanging over their performance.

Round 12. Friday, May 28, 2010
WIN Jubilee Stadium
An unstoppable Dragons outfit rolled over the top of the Eels in this one-sided clash in front of 15,000 fans at Kogarah.
After a last-start loss to the Canberra Raiders slowed the Dragons' successful start to the 2010 season, Ben Hornby and Jamie Soward inspired the Dragons to a six try to none win.
Both Hornby and Soward crossed over for tries with Brett Morris, Jason Nightingale and Kyle Stanley also finding the white stripe.
Despite being renowned for their attacking flair, the Eels couldn't muster any points against a determined Dragons defence spurred on by the faithful Kogarah home crowd.
