The NRL has announced that the St.George Bank Dragons will play the South Sydney Rabbitohs at OKI Jubilee Stadium on Sunday, 9 July. Kick-off has been scheduled for 3:00pm.

The last time the Dragons clashed with Souths at Kogarah was in 1998, with the Dragons recording a 20-14 victory during atrocious conditions.

Despite being down 8-0 and having Lance Thompson sent off in the 18th minute for a high tackle on Terry Hermansson, St.George prevailed in a gutsy display. The Dragons scored three first-half tries through Nathan Blacklock, Lee Murphy and Jimmy Lenihan, while Wayne Bartim kicked four goals during a Man of the Match performance.

The ground record for Kogarah was set in 1975 against Souths when 23,582 packed into Jubilee Oval to see St.George defeat Souths yet again. However, the Rabbitohs have the distinction of recording the first premiership victory at Kogarah in April 1950 when they defeated Saints by 17-15 before 12,500 fans.

In round four this year, the Dragons scored a comprehensive 44-14 victory against the so-called 'Pride Of the League' at South Sydney's Western Sydney homeground.
