The St George Illawarra Dragons' Jersey Flegg team have skyrocketed back into finals contention following an important 38-18 win over the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks on Sunday afternoon.

The second-placed Sharks started as expected when five-eighth Jayden Millard scored within three minutes. However quick tries from Dragons halfback Blair Grant and prop Eddie Blacker put the Red V back in the lead after the half hour.

Tries either side of half-time from Sharks centre Cooper Bowen saw Cronulla stay in touch with the game though Dragons winger Sam McCann's effort in between kept the Red V well within reach.

Match highlights: Round 22 v Sharks

The Dragons would run roughshod from there as front-rower Hudson Spicer, five-eighth Tyran Wishart and back-rower Simeone Taateo put the result beyond doubt in the last 25 minutes.

Another important match beckons for the now eighth-placed Dragons this Saturday afternoon when they take on the New Zealand Warriors at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Kogarah.
