St George-Illawarra supporter the GRL Phantom had his faith in miracles restored following the Dragons surprise 26-6 victory over premiership favourites the roosters on Anzac Day.
Ahead 18-6 at the break care of three tries to Ben Hornby, Jason Nightingale and Josh Morris and 3 goals including one penalty shot from Jamie Soward, the homeside never loosened their grip on the game and it showed in the second half when they grabbed another eight points.
Brett Morris scored the only try of the second term when Hooker Simon Woolford put through a grubber with Morris winning the race to the ball.
An unsuccessful conversion was later compensated for when the Roosters were penalized for raking the ball from Josh Morris after he was held. Soward took a shot at goal and it was all over red rover for another Anzac Day clash.
roosters lone try came in the 20th minute when Anthony Tupou took an inside ball from Braith Anasta before stepping inside Brett Morris and running 35 metres to score.
Craig Fizgibbon closed the gap to make it 12-6. But that was all the Roosters could contribute to the game as the Dragons went onto hold the Bondi Boys scoreless for the next 60 minutes.
News of the victory was soured by the fact that the Dragons have the bye next week and can’t test themselves quick enough to see if there is enough momentum to determine if the bad days are behind them for a while.
