NRL Late Mail: Round 24

St George Illawarra Dragons Head Coach Paul McGregor has finalised his team for the Round 24 Members Appreciation match against the Gold Coast Titans at Jubilee Oval, Kogarah on Sunday. 

Dragons captain Ben Creagh returns to the starting line-up to captain the Red-and-Whites having overcome his hamstring strain sustained prior to last round.

The Univeristy of Wollongong junior's inclusion means prop Mike Cooper reverts to the interchange with Jack Stockwell and Bronson Harrison omitted.

The Dragons will wear their ‘Members Appreciation’ jersey which will see the names of over 400 Red V Members who signed-up for the unique initiative emblazoned across the front of the iconic Red V jersey.

Jubilee Oval Venue Management have advised the Dragons that they will permit both Red V Members and supporters the opportunity to access the playing field after the fixture, weather permitting.

This is a unique opportunity to have a kick, pass a ball or take some photographs on field once a second siren has sounded, which will be approximately 10 minutes after the conclusion of play.

Entry to the field will be via gates located in the corners of the ground and managed by staff and security personnel.
