Tackle five on the line...
We're going upstairs again.
Fien with a bomb over to the right touchline, Nathan Green appeared to out-jump Vatuvei and claim the try.
Manu exposed twice in a row. And replays looks good for the Dragons.

Drinkwater with a towering bomb. It was taken again by Green who passed off for Fien. He looked set to score but it was called back for a forward pass.

They now need to up the tempo. Potentially 25 minutes left in their season if they don't.
Hurrell brought down 20 metres out on tackle five.
Johnson with a cross-field kick but the chase is non-existent and Green claims with ease.
Strange lack of urgency there from the Warriors.

But they're still only a converted try from leveling the contest.
Warriors on attack again, Mannering takes tackle five inside the 10.
