Dragons Firing for Consecutive
The St George Illawarra Dragons will be looking to make it seven consecutive victories in front of a fourth consecutive record home crowd* in their last round game of the regular season against the Knights at Oki Jubilee Stadium this Sunday.
The Dragons past three games at home have produced ground records* at both Oki Jubilee and WIN Stadium (Rnd 20 v Sharks Oki ? 17, 113; Rnd 21 v Roosters WIN ? 19,512, Rnd 24 ? Eels Oki ? 17, 523) and there is limited general admission tickets left available for what promises to be an exciting clash with the inform Newcastle.
Coach Nathan Brown has named the same team as last week with representative centre Matt Cooper still unavailable due to injury (hamstring) but expected to be fit for the Finals Series.
?The Knights are in great form and don?t deserve to be where they are on the competition ladder,? said Brown. ?We are expecting an extremely tough match and it is a great opportunity for us coming into the finals?.
* The ground record at Kogarah Jubilee, prior to the current sponsorship arrangement, stands at 23,582 (v Souths, May 4, 1975) - edit.
