The St.George Bank Dragons will field the same starting line-up for the second consecutive week when they face the Panthers in a Steelers Heritage match at WIN Stadium this Sunday.
Dragons coach Nathan Brown has retained the starting line-up which registered back-to-back wins against the Knights and Tigers in the past two weeks and the same bench that he used last weekend against the Tigers.
The Dragons will wear a special replica of the 1982 Illawarra Steelers jersey in Sunday?s match which will celebrate the Steelers first premiership ever match against Penrith on February 28, 1982. The special match also commemorates the contribution of the Illawarra Steelers to rugby league in the Illawarra region.
