"I saw you last week and everything is reduced to the attitude. The attitude begins in the defense and hurt the people through the center. There are too many weapons.
"The crowd will not appear. They are winners and they hate to lose. They have to win six to eight, good luck."
Dragons were hampered by injuries in 2019, but given his list, Carroll believes he should do much better than the 14th with eight rounds to play.
"They are in a massive hole, but they have five players of origin, two international English, two internationals of Fiji and an international Samoan. They should do better miles," said Carroll.
"They continue to blame the coach. Everything is reduced to the player individually doing his own work. "

Ethan Lowe 13 Cameron Murray 14. Tom Amone 15. Mark Nicholls 16. Jaydn Su … 17. Kyle Turner 18. Kurt Dillon 19. Connor Tracey 20. Bayley Sironen 21. Corey Allan
Talk point: Cowboys' employer, Michael Morgan, is considered a very remote thing to return from the symptoms of cerebral upheaval, despite being named on the No. 18 shirt. Cowboys will be looking to go into the top eight if there are other results, while the Rabbitoh need a win to keep pressure on the storm for the prime minister.
State of the Fox Sports Lab: South Sydney has won the last three games against northern Queensland, with the two games played last year that decided one point each. The Cowboys have won only three of the eight games played in Townsville this season, losing the last two games. Four of the last five games in Townsville have decided for seven points or less, including the last two games in two points or less.

Gold Coast Titans vs Melbourne Storm at the Cbus Super Stadium, at 2:00 p.m.
Titans: 1. Alexander Brimson 2. Dale Copley 3. Brenko Lee 4. Brian Kelly 5. Phillip Sami 6. Tyrone Roberts 7. Ryley Jacks 8. Jarrod Wallace 9. Nathan Peats 10. Jack Stockwell 11. Kevin Proctor 12.

Isaac Lumelume
Talk point: The Titans face a tough test at the storm for their first game since the looting of Garth Brennan. Ryley Jacks is in doubt with a coastal injury, with AJ Brimson his probable replacement if discarded, which would lead to the return of Michael Gordon of injuries. The Storm has chosen to rest the star of the Cameron Munster origin, with Joe Stimson doing five to eighth.
State of the Fox Sports Lab: This game will feature the current first team (Storm) against the last team (Titans). Since 2007, the last position has won only three of the 14 games. Two of these losses for the first time have taken part in Melbourne, who lost 12-10 against Manly in round 8, 2015 and 16-10 in the Eels in round 20, 2012, and the other is the Tigers in the third round this season, losing to the Bulldogs. This is the second time in the story that both sides will be in a first match against the last. Melbourne came to the first round of 2011 as the first win, defeating the last headlines of the category, 40-16 at Robina. In the NRL era, the Storm has been part of seven of the 23 previous games between the first and last, winning five and losing two.
The odds (courtesy of Sportsbet): Titans $ 2.90, Storm $ 1.41
Our prediction: Storm by 16

Talk point: Tom Trbojevic returns to the Sea Eagles after having been rested against the Rabbitohs in an opportune impulse on the side of Des Hasler. He hopes the eels will touch Blake Ferguson, despite giving him a week of training to recover from the Origin period.
State of the Fox Sports Lab: Eels have won seven of the last eight games against the Sea Eagles, the only exception that occurred in the second round of last season, when Manly won his biggest win over eels, staying behind winners of 54-0 in Lottoland. Five of the seven eel victories were 12 points or less, but the most recent was a 34 point victory in the 7th round of last season.
