This week in St George Illawarra history

Take a trip down memory lane with the St George Illawarra Dragons each week as we re-visit the highs and lows, triumphs and tribulations of the Red V.


St George Illawarra hooker Wayne Bartrim is sent off for attempting to kick an opponent; the Dragons go down 24-6 to Parramatta at WIN Stadium.


St George Illawarra unveil a new northern grandstand at WIN Stadium. A crowd of 16,321 turns out to watch the Dragons draw 20-all with Parramatta.


St George Illawarra centre Matt Cooper scores a club record four tries in his team’s 44-18 defeat of Penrith at WIN Stadium.


St George Illawarra hooker Luke Priddis becomes the 14th player in the history of the premiership to play 300 games when he helps the Dragons to a 19-6 defeat of the Gold Coast at Skilled Park.


St George Illawarra five-eighth Jamie Soward kicks a late field goal to steer the Dragons to a 13-12 win over Wests Tigers in the feature match of the NRL's Heritage Round at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The game commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1963 grand final, won 8-3 by St George over Wests and which spawned the famous Gladiators photograph featuring rival captains Norm Provan and Arthur Summons.

The Dragons went on a spending spree this same week after signing Melbourne five-eighth Gareth Widdop to a four-year deal and Canberra second-rower Joel Thompson to a three-year deal.
