Brisbane win after an amazing defensive effort.
Brisbane produced a mammoth effort to outlast a determined St George outfit 22-6 in the second round of the NRL.
The two teams went into half time with the scoreline locked at 6-6, with the Broncos desperately camped on their own try line for much of the half.
The Dragons could not capitalise on a mammoth amount of possession and field position as they were repeatedly turned back by the Broncos defence.
Ranked 8th in the NRL for defence, the Broncos endured the onslaught and the mounting pressure, but the sheer amount of work took its toll on the visitors who looked tired even as they ran on in the second half.
Despite looking exhausted, the Broncos hit back with some brilliant running from winger Jack Reed and fullback Corey Norman.
Norman is currently at the centre of contract speculation as he considers a move to Parramatta but showed he was not distracted by the off-field drama with a strong performance for the Broncos.
The halves pairing of Peter Wallace and Scott Prince showed promise when the Broncos had opportunities in attack, capitalising on their brief appearances in the opposition half.
The Dragons will be disappointed with the result after dominating possession for so much of the match.
Jamie Soward will want to forget the match after making two errors in crucial points of the second half, kicking the ball out on the full and not making the 10-metres on a kick-off.
The win was the first of the season for Brisbane and leaves St George win-less from their two opening matches.
