Description –

St George Illawarra Dragons lock Jack de Belin has welcomed the local derby rivalry against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at UOW Jubilee Oval, Kogarah on Saturday.

The NSW Country Origin representative admits that form goes out the window when both teams meet and expects it to be a heated affair between both come kick-off.

The Red-and-Whites will be bolstered in their playing ranks for the fixture with second-rowers Tyson Frizell and Joel Thompson both available for selection following suspension as well as possibly fullback Josh Dugan (jaw).

“The last time we played them they gave us a bit of a touch-up so we will be out seeking revenge,” said de Belin.

“The Sharks has their first loss in I don’t know how many games and we ourselves have lost a few on the trot so both teams have a lot to play for.

“Derby games are the kind where everything just tightens up and they are tough to be honest and can become heated.

“It will be a huge boost having the calibre of players such as Joel and Tyson back on the field and Josh too if he is fit.

“We lost a lot of experience when they were not on the park so hopefully they can give us that boost that we need.”
