Dragons thrash Souths

St George Illawarra coach Nathan Brown wasn't ready to rank his side among the NRL's elite but South Sydney counterpart Arthur Kitinas had no such qualms.

Moments after the Dragons posted 50 points for the second week in a row - this time against his Rabbitohs - Kitinas branded them a genuine threat to the league's big four - the Sydney Roosters, Bulldogs, Penrith and Brisbane.

The Dragons raced in 10 tries in a 52-12 victory before a 23,000 plus crowd at the SCG.

"There's as good as any of the top line teams," Kitinas said.

"The fact that they can score very quickly makes them really dangerous, they have a very big forward pack, they have a good seven, a good six and they have got so much speed out wide.

"If they turn up to play every week they're going to be hard to beat."

Asked whether the Dragons were as good as the Roosters, the premiership favourites, Kitinas said: "I think they're up there with them.

"When they play the Roosters it will be a different sort of game. It will be a real tough physical sort of game.

"I think it will be an interesting game once they get into a real tough arm wrestle. I think if there's a question mark on them that's probably it."

There was no hint of an arm wrestle as the Dragons picked up where they left off against the Wests Tigers.
