Dragons Lower Grades Wrap: Round 12

Check out our results from Round 12 of the 2024 Knock-On Effect NSW Cup and Jersey Flegg Cup seasons from over the weekend.


The Dragons Knock-On Effect NSW Cup side surged to their third win in a row knocking off the Bulldogs – who had won six of their previous seven – 28-12 on Thursday night.

The victory proved a family affair with the Finau brothers and the Feagai twins crossing for all six of the side's tries in the 16-point rout.

Despite drawing first blood through Sione Finau, the Dragons found themselves trailing after the hosts went back-to-back through Lachlan Vale and Blake Taaffe in quick succession.

Mathew Feagai finished off a clinical passage on the stroke of the siren to eat into the deficit and set up a second half Dragons shut-out.

Ben Woolf's men hit the lead again through Max Feagai 46 minutes in before two Sione Finau tries in the space of four minutes broke the contest open.

Haele Finau burrowed over to join his younger brother on the scoresheet late and seal a handy pair of competition points for the Red V.

Knock-On Effect NSW Cup Highlights: Round 12


The club's under-21s side overcame a 16-point halftime deficit to topple the Bulldogs 34-22 at Belmore Sports Ground on Friday night.

Eyeing their fourth win on the trot, the hosts got off to a flyer with Jonathan Sua, Jordi Mazzone, and Bud Smith all finding their way over the stripe in the opening half-hour.

From that point on however it was all the Dragons with Aaron Hertsch's men pouring on 34 unanswered points to race towards a key win.

SG Ball standout Jesse Williams took in a Ben Rumble cut-out to dive over in the right corner in the opening set of the second half to spark the side's fightback.

Rumble found more success down the right corridor soon after with a charging Nick Tsougranis finding his fullback with a perfectly timed offload for the side's second.

With no one at home, a savvy Ashton Ward chip laid on the side's third try down the right edge in nine minutes with Hayden Buchanan jetting through to ground the ball.

Ward converted the try to tie things up with a little over 20 minutes to play.

Lyhkan King-Togia was the next to get on the board for the visitors splitting a pair of defenders and leaving the opposing fullback in his wake to dive over and earn his side their first lead of the contest.

It marked the five-eighth's fourth four-pointer in as many Jersey Flegg outings this season.

Ward joined his halves partner on the scoresheet moments later after sending Tsougranis steaming into the backfield and backing up on the inside as the Dragons' attacking flurry continued.

It was Tsougranis again causing havoc down the right edge the following set bumping off defenders to charge into space from inside his own half and sending a streaking Williams over for the side's sixth try in less than 20 minutes.

It came as little surprise that Williams opened up his Jersey Flegg career notching a pair of four-pointers with the teenager fresh off an SG Ball campaign in which he managed a competition-high 20 tries from just 11 appearances.

Cassius Tia found a try for the Bulldogs late, but it proved in vain with the Dragons earning a 12-point victory.
