The St George Illawarra Dragons' season is on the line this weekend during Members Appreciation Round against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.
Despite remaining outside of the top eight on the NRL Telstra Premiership ladder, a finals berth will be sealed if the Dragons beat the Bulldogs.
On a day where the Red V will thank their loyal members, there are plenty of other great initiatives for those thinking of coming to the game:
· A capped ticket price of $25 for adults and $40 for families, with free entry for kids 12-and-under. Click here for tickets.
