THE Jubilee Oval upgrade is almost complete for Sunday's big game against the Sharks. However, on Saturday, a final cleanup is taking place to ensure that everything is in order for the historic day.
KOGARAH Mayor Jim Taylor has confirmed that Sunday's home game against the Sharks will go ahead at Jubilee Oval. However, the construction work is not entirely completed due to the consistent rain that the St.George District has experienced over the past month.
THE NRL has announced that St.George-Illawarra will host the Sharks at Jubilee Oval on Sunday, the 4th of May (3pm kick-off). The match will be televised by Channel 9 at 4:00pm [delayed telecast] on the same afternoon.
ON this night, 12 months ago, St.George-Illawarra supporters rallied for the return of the Dragons to Kogarah's Jubilee Oval. The R2K group hosted an Information Night at Kogarah RSL Club, with guest speakers including Frank Hyde, Robert Stone, Tony Squires and Dick Caine. Many supporters regard the Information Night as the catalyst for the long awaited return which was announced on the 5th of September last year.
