The Dragons Knock On Effect Cup and Jersey Flegg squads both went down to the Parramatta Eels in Round 23 of the NSWRL competitions over the weekend.

Knock On Effect Cup

A four-try outing courtesy of Savelio Tamale was not enough to push the Dragons to victory over the Eels in Sunday’s Knock On Effect Cup clash with the hosts running out 44-28 winners at Kellyville Park.

The hosts enjoyed a strong start with tries to Jirah Momoisea, Jordan Rankin, Chris Tupou and Daejarn Asi in the opening half-hour boosting them to a 22-0 lead.

Tautau Moga and Tamale crossed for the Red V prior to the break to breathe some life back into their chances.

Asi grabbed a second on the other side of half-time before Lachlan Blackburn added his name to the try-scorers list.

Tamale bagged his second 54 minutes in before a Waqa Blake try extended the Eels’ lead to 38-16.

An under-19s Blues representative this year, Tamale was on the scoresheet again for the visitors with 15 minutes to go before notching his fourth off the following set to help cut the deficit to 10.

Asi snatched his third try late as the Eels held on for a 44-28 win.

Jersey Flegg Cup

The Dragons Jersey Flegg squad slumped to a 48-10 loss to the Eels at Cabramatta’s New Era Stadium on Saturday.

The hosts enjoyed a dream start with Ethyn Martin crossing in the opening set of the contest before Matthew Arthur followed him five minutes later.

Martin grabbed a second before a Joshua Lynn try and Matthew Komolafe double saw the Eels jump out to a 30-0 half-time lead.

Travis Barrett-Hancock crossed to get the Red V on the board early in the second period before under-19s Blues representative Ethan Sanders answered for the Eels.

Campbell Watchirs’ try-scoring form continued for the Dragons before the hosts capped the afternoon off with a second try to Arthur and a try to Brock Parker late.
