Dragons prove why they're NRL top contenders

The St George Illawarra Dragons confirmed their status as one of the NRL premiership favourites after a Brett Morris hat-trick propelled the red and whites to a 26-6 win over Canterbury at WIN Stadium.

The Dragons proved last week's win over Parramatta was no fluke as they produced another flawless display to record their first win over Canterbury in Wollongong, the loss leaving the Bulldogs without a win after the first two rounds ahead of a clash with the red-hot Sydney Roosters.

There are no such concerns for St George Illawarra who blew away the opposition with a stunning opening burst which yielded 16 unanswered points in as many minutes to make the match-up between the two sides which finished one and two on the ladder last year a no-contest.
