Beanies for Brain Cancer Round
There are plenty of reasons to get involved from home this weekend, but none more so than the fourth annual Beanies for Brain Cancer Round.
While there won’t be many fans at the ground to celebrate the occasion, the Mark Hughes Foundation (MHF) are hoping for a similar result as last year when $3.1 million was raised.
With fans not able to pick up a stylish MHF beanie at the ground, the NRL and Mark Hughes Foundation are urging people to get involved and buy a beanie online from their website.
For the first time in 2020, the Dragons will travel interstate to play. Up until now, every match including trials has been played in New South Wales, but Round 6 will see the Dragons travel north of the border.
The Dragons have happy memories at Suncorp Stadium in recent times; winning two of their past three trips to the ground. This including a memorable 48-18 qualifying final victory over the Brisbane Broncos in 2018.
Ben Hunt happy with positional switch
Off the back of their 30-16 thumping of the Sharks last weekend, the Dragons will field an almost unchanged line-up against the Titans on Saturday.
James Graham moves back into the starting 13 replacing Trent Merrin who moves back to the bench. Following Issac Luke’s departure to the Brisbane Broncos earlier this week, Tristan Sailor joins the extended squad in his place.
The Titans will also stick with a similar squad, although Dale Copley (ankle) will miss the Dragons' clash and has been replaced by the debuting Corey Thompson, who only joined the club on Monday from the Wests Tigers.
After a much-needed victory last week, the Dragons come up against a Gold Coast Titans side who are now bottom of the ladder.
The Dragons hold a strong record over the Gold Coast, winning four consecutive matches against the Titans including seven of their past 10 encounters.
While both sides will be desperate for a win on Saturday, the Dragons' recent record against the Titans shapes as a good omen.
