The fifth-placed Dragons are looking to continue their rise up the Telstra Premiership ladder as they take on the twelfth-placed Roosters in front of what is expected to be a capacity crowd in Wollongong.
�This is a very important game for us a win could see us move up the ladder, a loss could put us out of the eight,� said Brown. �The Roosters are quality opposition and they are equally desperate for a win, so it should make for an exciting clash�.
The Dragons last week played in front of a sell-out record crowd (17, 113) at Oki Jubilee Stadium and are encouraging their supporters to pre-purchase tickets to ensure their entry into WIN Stadium on Friday night.
