Dragons hope to tame Bulls

Sport360 - - Chess -

De­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Dubai Dragons will get their AFL Mid­dle East Pre­mier­ship cam­paign un­der­way on Fri­day (12:00) when they take on Mul­ti­plex Bulls in a re­peat of last year’s Grand Fi­nal.

The Dragons se­cured their fourth suc­ces­sive Pre­mier­ship ti­tle when they beat the Bulls in March, but a strong pre-sea­son for Nathan Holly’s side has tilted this week­end’s game in their favour.

Bulls coach An­drew Wal­ters said: “We are re­ally look­ing for­ward to the sea­son ahead and hop­ing to con­tinue with the form that saw us win the Pre-Sea­son Cup last month.

Mean­while, new Dragons coach Chris Burke said: “It has been ex­cit­ing to watch the in­te­gra­tion of new tal­ent join the club over a solid pre-sea­son. We un­der­stand the chal­lenge that we face, but look for­ward to the hitout against the Bulls.”

In the cur­tain raiser, Abu Dhabi Fal­cons take on the Dubai Din­goes (10:00).
