Luke Priddis, Mathew Head set to ignite Shellharbour

Shellharbour coach Mark Horo will rely on experienced duo Luke Priddis and Mathew Head to spark the Dragons in tomorrow's battle with Wentworthville at Ron Costello Oval.Head will line up at five-eighth, while Priddis will start at his preferred spot at hooker after missing a place in the St George Illawarra side for the road game against the New Zealand Warriors.Priddis was instrumental in last week's 38-14 upset of Central Coast and is expected to have a similar impact from dummy half tomorrow."Luke was outstanding last week," Horo said. "His attitude was great and he was the catalyst for the entire team. You can see he has that class about him and has that ability to assess what's going on around him and make good decisions."Maty wasn't there last week, but he's got all the skills and we want him to come back with a really good attitude and make sure he has a positive influence on the team."Despite his side being last on the table, Horo said the big win over Central Coast proved the Dragons were capable of conquering any rival."The challenge for us this week is to maintain that level of intensity and make sure we bring the same attitude," he said.The Dragons can still force their way into the top eight with a big finish to the season.Their run home also includes games against Cronulla (away), Balmain-Ryde (home), Auckland (away) and Windsor (away), in addition to a final-round bye."We don't have to worry about the mathematics of it all. If we beat Wenty it's game on," Horo said.Lining up for the visitors tomorrow will be Horo's son Justin."They beat us on their ground and this is my chance to get bragging rights on him," the coach said. "This is different to last time because the winner gets bragging rights for 12 months. Hopefully, I'll have the last laugh."Kick-off is at 3.30pm.
