DRAGONS Supporters, Great to see the Dragons get back on track with a hard fought win over Manly last Saturday. They certainly looked sharp with Matthew Head back at halfback, and should continue to play well while he is on the field. So onto next week and the big Anzac Day clash with the Roosters. This game has become a great tradition, and is something all Dragons fans look forward to. It has also become one of the MBDS' biggest days of the year, and we hope to continue that tradition this year. In a first for an MBDS event our sponsor ONESTOP home loans will be putting money behind the bar for MBDS members!! We thank ONESTOP for this generous gesture and hope you can all get along to enjoy the free pots of beer, or glasses of house wine. We will also have the official MBDS Shirts at the game for people to try on and place orders with George. Some of you may have seen George "modeling" the shirt at previous events, and they have come up really well. We have a variety of sizes to try on the day so speak to George, Paul R or Paul B for further information. Attached is a photo of the MBDS top Details for this week are as follows: WHERE: Grosvenor Hotel, 10 Brighton Road East St KildaWHEN: ANZAC DAY, 25th April 2pm onwards (Free drinks from 2:30pm, kick off at 3pm)WHAT: Dragons v Roosters The Grosvenor will also have the Collingwood v Essendon game in the main bar so bring your friends along for a MASSIVE AFTERNOON OF FOOTBALL.

DRAGONS Supporters, After a Round 5 flogging most of us would rather forget, this week the Dragons head to "Fortress" Brookvale to take on the Sea Eagles. The 2006 NRL premiership is as close as we have seen in many years, and this match will be another tough game against a Manly side who are starting to play their way into some good form. Manly have proven fairly hard to beat at Brookvale over the past few years and the Dragons will need to have a much higher level of commitment and a tougher mental attitude to take the points in this one. With Shaun Timmins and Wes "The Fijian Flyer" Naiqama both returning from injury the Dragons are nearing a full strength side and will give a good account of themselves. The MBDS screening this week will once again be at the Grosvenor Hotel at East St Kilda. The screening will be held in the Sports Bar at 5:30pm Saturday on Fox Sports. Hope to see a big crowd there to catch all the action live! What: Dragons v Sea EaglesWhen: Saturday 15th April, 5:30pmWhere: Grosvenor Hotel 10 Brighton Road East St Kilda ANZAC DAY Just to let you all know, we have also booked the Grosvenor for the annual Anzac Day clash between the Dragons and the Roosters. Further details will be coming in the following weeks but put it in your diary now as this will be a cracker of a game and we expect a good crowd at the Grosvenor for the match. Due to the importance of this match, our new sponsor OneStop Home Loans will be putting money on the bar which is a first for MBDS so come along and enjoy the day. Thanks to OneStop for their support!
DRAGONS Supporters, Round 4 saw the Dragons notch up their second win of the 2006 season, holding out a determined and experienced Brisbane Broncos outfit at WIN Stadium. Matches between these two teams always seem to produce something special (who could forget Riddell's penalty from the sideline at ANZ) and this was no exception. The Dragons showed patience in the match and plenty of heart in defence to take the two points. This weeks match will be another tough encounter, with the Dragons taking on Newcastle at WIN Stadium. Without Andrew Johns last week the Knights went down to the NZ Warriors, but his probable return this week will make for a stronger Knights team. Will be a good test for the Dragons who are slowly starting to show some signs of cohesion in attack, and grit in defence. Our screening this week will be held at The Grosvenor Hotel at East St Kilda. With kick off scheduled for 7:30, why not take the opportunity to head in early for dinner in the restaurant, or a few drinks in the bar before the game starts? We will have the sports bar sectioned off for the screening.

AFTER the heartbreaking loss last week in Golden Point extra time against the Panthers, this week the Dragons back up against Russells Rabbitoh's on Sunday. The Dragons still have a number of players out with injury, but will welcome Trent Barrett back with open arms as his leadership and passing game were both sorely missed last week. After losing the Charity Shield the team should be fired up to knock off the Rabbitoh's and register their first win of the season. This weeks match will be shown at The Grosvenor Hotel at East St Kilda at 2:30. With the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony being held that night after the match, we would like to invite all and sundry to also come into The Beach at The Arts Centre to watch the Closing Ceremony on the big screen. This is a great place to soak up the atmosphere of the final night of the Games, and the tram from the Grosvenor takes you straight up St Kilda Rd to the Arts Centre! Plan is to meet up there at 5:30 if you are able to make it.

SEASON 2006 arrives with a bang this Friday night as the competition favourites, the St George Illawarra Dragons take on last years premiers, the Wests Tigers. In a blockbuster match the Dragons will be trying to end the early season form hoodoo that has haunted them for many years. Without a win in the pre-season for either team, this match promises to see both teams rise to the occasion in an attempt to lay claim to some early season dominance. Once again Crown Casino welcomes MBDS back for season 2006 for our Channel Nine screenings, which we thank them for. In 2005 the staff at Crown and SteakOut in particular were very accommodating, with our own roped off area and live screenings from Channel Nine in Sydney.
