Dragons cruise to victory in Charity Shield

It looks like the Dragons have suffered no lapses in concentration over the pre-season after they romped to an easy victory in the 2011 Charity Shield, beating the South Sydney Rabbitohs 32-10.

With the Rabbitohs missing several of their big stars for the clash, the Dragons made light work of the inexperienced Bunnies outfit, as they brace themselves for their World Cup Challenge bout.

In what is sure to make other teams think, the Dragons romped home with Jamie Soward, Ben Hornby and Dean Young all sitting out at the clash.

Darius Boyd, who made a surprise shift to five-eighth for the clash, paved the way for new recruit Bronx Goodwin to start at fullback, and he made the most of the opportunity scoring half of his teams points.

The man-of-the-match however, was most probably young, unheralded second-rower Jack Bosden, who had a barnstorming effect on the game, and he might just be headed to the WCC game.

Sandow had a decent game, which is a good sign for the Bunnies as his past year or two have not been as good as they can be.

Sandow set up the opening try of the game, and put on a big hit on fellow small man Nathan Fien, but despite early momentum, the Bunnies just could not get a vice-grip on the game.

The Dragons new recruits all played, and they played well, as they will be looking to build on their chance to play for the Dragons come Round 1.
