This is more than just a rematch of the 2019 grand final, the Dragons are effectively playing for their season in Saturday's match at Bankwest Stadium.
After suffering a 18-4 loss to the Roosters in their opening-round fixture St George Illawarra need a win to keep their chances alive.
Brisbane, on the other hand, look the goods once again. After a slowish start they took care of business against the Warriors to show they remain the team to beat.
The battle between rival No.7s Maddie Studdon and Ali Brigginshaw is one worth watching.

Steph Hancock v Millie Boyle: The former teammates will go head-to-head. Hancock made 29 tackles and ran for 73 metres in round one while Boyle ran for 89 metres and made 21 tackles. Both sets of backs will be hoping their front-rowers can set them up to turn field position into points.
Tamika Upton's hat-trick against the Warriors was the just the second in the history of the competition. The first woman to achieve that feat was Kimiroa Nati in the 2018 grand final.
