FOR two groups of players who have been coached by Wayne Bennett, it was the bunch who had been with him longest which beat the latest - once again. The Knights will surely improve through this year and beyond, but right now the Dragons are better. They have shown that twice in the opening seven rounds.
The Dragons, holding their own under their new coach Steve Price, haven't quite shown the consistency that he would be commanding, but last night, at home, they responded to a poor performance in better fashion than their opponents did. They should have won by a far greater margin than they did.
