A massive day is planned on Sunday to celebrate the Red V careers of both Jeremy Latimore and Gareth Widdop as well as Father's Day. Here are the five things you need to know before our last home game of the year.

#ThanksGaz and #ThanksJerry 

Five-eighth and captain Gareth Widdop, and fan-favourite Jeremy Latimore will both run out for the final Dragons home game on Sunday.

At 32, Latimore is hanging up the boots after a career spanning 11 years and five different clubs. While Widdop jets off to his home country to see out his career in the English Super League.

As captain, Widdop has been an integral part of the Dragons since he joined from the Melbourne Storm in 2014, winning the Red V Members Player of the Year award (2014-15) and the Dragons Medal in 2017.

With a combined 180 games of appearances in the red and white, the Dragons will say thank you on Sunday with face masks handed out around the ground, and a special post-match presentation.

Final home game 

The Dragons season is drawing to a close with two games left to play before attention turns to next year.

Sunday's clash with the Tigers at the SCG is the final home game of 2019 and the last chance to see the Dragons in Sydney this year.

Before the Dragons fly to the Gold Coast next week to take on the Titans in the last outing of the year, their attention will be focused on spoiling the Tigers' finals ambitions. 

The Tigers are still an outside chance of making the top eight, but a loss to the Dragons will be a significant blow for their season.

Sydney Cricket Ground record

Historically, the SCG has been a happy hunting ground for the Dragons. But the same cannot be said for the Wests Tigers who have a mediocre record at the ground. 

The Dragons have won eight of 13 matches at the SCG since 1999 giving them a 63 per cent win rate at the venue. The Tigers have managed to win just one of five matches at the ground.

Father's Day 

Sunday is a special day not just because the Dragons are playing their last home game of the year, but also because it's Father's Day.

Many of the playing group are fathers themselves and will have their children in attendance, giving them some extra motivation to finish the match on top.

To celebrate Father's Day, the Dragons are offering two for one general admission 'take your dad for free' ticket offer which is available for pre-purchase and also at the box office on game day.

Score Dragons ready for Score Raiders clash

Historic curtain raiser

Warming up the crowd on Sunday will be a historic match between the Score Dragons and their Canberra counterparts, the Score Raiders.

The Score Dragons were established six years ago to include people with disabilities into a local rugby league competition in the Illawarra.

It has since grown from strength to strength and Sunday's curtain-raiser is a major step forward, playing an interstate team at the SCG for the first time.

Check out the Score Dragons' line-up and make sure you get down early to cheer them on and witness the action!
