With the euphoria and excitement of the Anzac Day win over the Roosters, fresh in the mind, it is imperative that Saints put back to back wins together to get our season back on track. With that in mind, the Dragon Army needs to come out in force & support our boys on Sunday afternoon.
This clash presents an opportunity for the Army to follow up its outstanding performance on Monday with a vocal encore this Sunday at the Olympic Stadium. If you have never joined in with the Dragon Army before, Sunday afternoon presents the perfect chance ? the more the merrier.
The Tigers will be desperate for the two points, as will the Dragons so this should a good game of footy. At 2-5 and a favourable draw ahead, the club has a chance to climb the ladder and this all starts on Sunday.
Kick-off for Premier League is 1.10pm with the main game starting at 3.00pm ? bring your flags & signs, wear your red & white, bring your voices & Fire Up!
GETTING THERE & AWAY: Your best bet on getting to the game is via public transport. There are limited car spaces but with a train station opposite the stadium, train is the way to go. For detailed timetable information, go to: http://www.131500.com.au
TICKET PRICES: Tickets in the cheapest category are available from the ground for $8 with a Dragons season ticket. Alternatively, you can buy them during the lead-up to the match from Ticketek for $19.
WHERE ARE THE ARMY SITTING?: St George Illawarra supporters have been allocated Aisles 112-114 for this Wests Tigers home match. If you trying to visualise this vantage point, this is where Canterbury fans sat in Round 1. Depending on crowd size, it is most likely the Army will utilise this part of the ground and maybe extend around to Aisles 115 or 116 for acoustic purposes.

BEST PUBS: To be honest, there isn?t much in the way of decent watering Holes in the Olympic Park precinct. If you are desperate for a beer, the Novotel across from the stadium is probably your only option in this area other than grabbing a beer at the game.
