The Dragons Knock On Effect Cup and Jersey Flegg squads both managed strong wins in Round 16 of the NSWRL competitions over the weekend.

Knock On Effect Cup

Bronx Goodwin’s Dragons came away with a comprehensive 46-4 win over the Western Suburbs Magpies on Sunday afternoon at Lidcombe Oval thanks to try doubles to Sione Finau and Billy Burns.

Finau picked up a loose ball and raced 70 metres downfield to get the Dragons on the board first before Tautau Moga muscled his way to the line for the side’s second.

Dan Russell skied to reel in a Zach Herring bomb and score before an effort from inside their own half ended with Treigh Stewart scooping up a kick off the boot of a streaking Finau to score and improve the lead to 22-4 heading into the sheds.

A Herring break laid on a four-pointer for Burns on the other side of half-time before the rangy back-rower crashed over four minutes later for his second of the afternoon and seventh in the last four games.

Stewart darted into the backfield to send Jackson Shereb over before Finau snatched an intercept to race away and grab his second.

After assisting on four tries himself, Herring was the beneficiary of another Stewart break late to cap off a dominant afternoon for the Dragons and secure their fourth win from their past six.

Jersey Flegg Cup

The Dragons Jersey Flegg squad are back in the winners’ circle after deserved 30-20 victory over the Canberra Raiders in the nation’s capital thanks to a Savelio Tamale double.

It took just three minutes for Tamale to get the visitors on the board, however, the Raiders were able to respond with a pair of tries in the space of five minutes.

Tamale grabbed a second 24 minutes in to tie the game at 10-apiece before a try to fullback Ben Rumble wrestled the lead back for the Dragons.

A four-pointer to centre Campbell Watchirs extended the Dragons’ lead before Canberra answered moments before the break.

Halfback Nicholas Quinn answered for the Red V on the other side of the intermission, but Canberra refused to go away cutting the lead back to a converted try with a quarter of the match to play.

A 68th-minute try courtesy of winger Cooper Roberts gave the Dragons a 10-point buffer which they were able to hold onto to pinch a decisive victory.
