Welcome to WIN Stadium where the St George-Illawarra Dragons host the Sydney Roosters to kickoff Round 13. The Dragons have some late changes with prop Paul Vaughan ruled out due to a COVID-19 breach. This sees Josh Kerr start in the front row with Kaide Ellis coming onto the interchange bench to make his club debut in jersey #21. The Roosters have some big outs with centre Josh Morris and prop Jared Warea-Hargraves out. Mitch Aubusson will move to centre, with Nat Butcher to start in the backrow and Lindsay Collins to start at prop. Young forwards Max Bailey and Daniel Fifita get there opportunity in First Grade from the bench. This is a huge game for both sides, the Dragons must win to keep their season alive and the Roosters despite being undermanned risk losing touch with the Top 4. Stay tuned for all the action @LeagueUnlimited, kickoff not far away!
