Shark alert for Dragons

Townsville Bulletin - - Bizfi Nd -

DRAGONS play­maker Jamie Soward says the world club cham­pi­ons are wary of an am­bush by Cronulla on Mon­day night. ‘‘ We get up for ev­ery game, but there’s spe­cial clashes dur­ing the year and ob­vi­ously the Sharks at Shark Park is one of those,’’ Soward said. ‘‘ They prob­a­bly see it as big brother, lit­tle brother. We don’t see it like that at all. ‘‘ We just see it as two teams that are closely sit­u­ated to­gether and ( who) al­ways pro­duce a good clash. The derby is well and alive.’’ With Soward – who was red-hot in last week’s win over Gold Coast – and skip­per Ben Hornby in the halves, the Dragons have a sig­nif­i­cant edge in ex­pe­ri­ence over Cronulla’s scrum­base duo of Al­bert Kelly and Wade Graham.
