The Dragons number one ticket holder, the Honorable Prime Minister John Howard MP and newly elected NSW Premier Morris Iemma will be at Oki Jubilee Stadium to support their favourite team the St George Illawarra Dragons against the Eels this Sunday.
The red-hot Dragons will be looking to make it six consecutive wins having not lost a match since their Rnd 18 clash with Parramatta (14-40) as they endeavour to draw level on the competition ladder with the second-placed Eels.
This St George Illawarra Dragons game is also the St George District Rugby League Football Club Heritage Match and will honour the Dragons grand final winning teams from 1977 and 1979 and involve celebrations for the 85th anniversary of the St George DRLFC (1921-2005).
There will also be a special tribute to Robert Stone.
The only change to the Dragons side from last week is Albert Torrens in the centre, replacing Matt Cooper has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Cooper is expected to be fit for the Dragons next match in Round 26.
