Triple M's Mark "MG" Geyer and Matty Johns say the St George Illawarra Dragons' poor showing against the Canberra Raiders last night was  proof the ailing team would not make the Top 8 in the 2012 NRL premiership. See the Raiders' incredible final try in the video above.

"Can we say that the Dragons will not make the [Top] 8?" The Grill Team's Gus Worland asked his co-hosts, Triple M's Mark "MG" Geyer and Matty Johns.

"Yes, I think we can," Geyer said ruefully.

"The style of football they've played over the last three or four years has been a very tough one," Johns said.

"There were signs last year that the playing group was getting really tired. Some of the players are looking old, Gus," he told Worland.

"At the start of the year, I remember saying said they'd play more close games than anyone else in the competition, because they're tough and stoic in defense but at the moment there's no life in their attack. When the life goes out of your attack, the confidence disappears as well. No, they won't make the 8," Johns stated.

"If they were going to make the 8, last night Canberra wouldn't have scored with three minutes to go," Geyer added.

What do you think?
