    Choc and co wary of wounded Dragons

    THEY are struggling in the NRL cellar, but try telling in-form Manly forward Anthony ``Choc'' Watmough that the Dragons will represent another easy two competition points for the high-flying Sea Eagles on Saturday night.

    In fact, according to Watmough the Dragons' representative-laden pack will be a stern test of Manly's premiership credentials this year.

    Manly too are not without their stars with the likes of Ben Kennedy, Brent Kite and Steve Menzies all hitting their stride early.

    But it's the form of Watmough that has everyone talking.

    ``They can click any time,'' Watmough said of the Dragons yesterday.

    ``They've got too much strike in that team not to.

    ``It's going to take one or two little things to go their way then they are going to be unstoppable one day.

    ``Hopefully not this weekend.

    ``They have got their full team pretty much and it's going to be tough.

    ``Any time you go up against players of that calibre, even though they haven't won any games, it's a test.

    ``If our pack can come out and have a good win it's going to give us a lot of confidence.''

    Something Watmough has ample of at the moment.

    Despite never having played represented football, the young forward has been widely tipped to crack through this year.

    It's something that doesn't sit easily for the Narrabeen junior who would prefer to catch the perfect wave than harp on his Origin chances.

    ``I've only played one or two good games,'' Watmough said.

    ``Let's talk about it when I've played a few more.

    ``I just want to play good consistent footy for Manly. If it happens, it happens.''

    Watmough said a change in ``attitude'' and the inclusion of Ben Kennedy and Brent Kite in the Sea Eagles' pack has given him plenty of direction this year.

    ``I've got the attitude of `let's make it happen','' he said.

    ``I get involved a lot more now and put my hand up.''

    The Manly team were on Fox news this morning and all of them seem to have the right attitude. They expect the Saints to be desperate but say they want to continue the winning trend. I am getting more confident about this game. Kite will never make the speakers circuit on his performance but Monas came across well.

    WD wattas - seems he is more inteerested in what counts - playing for Manly.

    Good stuff. I really hope he gets a city jumper - it will do him a lot of good.
