Fien: Dragons can make finals

St George are still in with a chance of making the NRL‘s top eight if they continue with the form that saw them defeat Melbourne, according to Nathan Fien.

The veteran utility played a key role in the 26-18 victory against the Storm in Wollongong on Friday, after deputising for injured playmaker Jamie Soward.

“I was happy to have an opportunity in the halves, but I just wanted to get out there, play my role, and do my job for the boys,” told the Dragons’ official website.

“The Storm are a class outfit, and we knew we were going to be up against it.

“We really needed to get the two points, and we were able to do that by playing some really good patches of footy, but now we have to move on and look ahead to the Roosters on Friday.”

Elsewhere, Canberra posted a heavy defeat at the hands of resugent Newcastle while Gold Coast did their finals chances no harm with victory over the Roosters.

But the 11th-placed Dragons are just as capable of making the eight, says Fien.

“A lot of the sides that we run into before the end of the season are hovering around the top eight, so I guess we’re close enough if we’re good enough,” he added.

“We’re in the situation where we are now because we haven’t been consistent all year, but we’ve had a few good weeks now, and we really need to back that up against the Roosters.
