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.

After a LOOOOONG off season of tennis, cricket, some sailing and the World Club Challenge (doesn't it have to be close to be called a Challenge??), we finally welcome the Dragons back to the paddock to begin season 2006. 2005 finished with many of us left wondering what could have been, and eagerly anticipating how far St George Illawarra can go in 2006.
