Costigan doesn't expect bad blood on Sunday

6:18 am on 24 July 2009

The St George Illawarra forward Neville Costigan says he doesn't expect any trouble between Justin Poore and Steve Price in Sunday's National Rugby League game in Auckland.

Dragons prop Poore upset the Queensland players in State of Origin 3 by dropping Price on the ground while the Maroons forward was unconscious.

The pair will come face to face for the first time since the incident when Price leads the Warriors into battle against the competition leaders.

But Costigan says it's unlikely anything will happen.
