The Under-Man Dragon never found a chance against the West Tigers as he was trailing in the third defeat and was sixth in the last seven games.

If Jack de Bellin proved his fitness in the NSW Cup, it would be almost impossible for him to resist advancing the NRL to the NL.

Dragon Jack Lomax (thumb) and Matt Dupty (shoulder) without again at 113, while Josh McGuire and Tyrell Fumaono are expected to be suspended until round 116.

Depending on how he plays in his Rugby League return, De Bellin could face straight back in the NRL pack to face Brisbane on Thursday night.

The 300-year-old is expected to play 400 minutes in the western suburbs, two to 20 minutes away at Lidcomba Oval.

In an anomaly for Michael Maguire’s team, the Tigers’ four wins this season have come against Newcastle or Dragons.

The Tigers scored 1-16-8 earlier this month but Friday night was the exact opposite when they started fast from the block and the game was easy but comfortable.

The Tigers pack beat the Dragons well. Luciano Lilua brutally attacked along with Adam Douihi and Luke Brooks.

Jodi Roberts Dine Laurie, David Nofoaluma and Tommy Talau with double goals to try, a pair in two lead a backline that results in an action.

Laurie also finished with 1,152 running meters and two attempts to keep the dragons on the sword.

A slow 18-1 lead at half-time put the visitors on board, but the second half was marred by the efforts of Braden William, Ben Hunt and Talatou Amon.

It’s a long way from where the Dragons started the season with four rounds between two and five, after losing seven places to Canterbury in the last seven weeks.
