While we are dishing out the "we had six players out" excuse, spare a thought for the dragons, they lose there two quality front rowers, easily the best at club level. They lose there two strike centres, they lose there 5/8 and captain . They are playing one of the premiership front runners, not souths! and the cowboys have only 1 forward missing from there regular line up. Then they lose there half back about 15 mins in. No dramas, the full back has moved to 5/8 and the hooker moves to half back. These guys then manage to control the team, move them around the park and they give the cowboys a mini touch up. That is a quality side. Wont start bagging monaghs again as its been said enough, but over this weekend, both Moran at souths and Innes at saints have also proven themselves very capable half backs.
