Both the Dragons and Wests Tigers are shooting for three on the trot on what will also be a very special day for the Red V faithful.

Celebrating Red V members

This week we celebrate those in that number – our Red V members.

Member Appreciation Round is a special occasion each year, where Red V members can look forward to exclusive prizes, offers and experiences throughout the week.

It's the Dragons' way of acknowledging its members' continuous support and reward them for their commitment.

It's not too late, become a Red V member today and enjoy the perks of the week (and season) to come.

Injury cloud hangs over Dragons

Will he or won't he? That's the big question being asked after Jack Bird was named to start on Tuesday. This despite only playing 40 minutes in the Dragons' Anzac Day epic last weekend.

Bird has been named in the halves while he awaits the results of scans on his arm. A call will be made on his availability later in the week.

In a blow for the Red V, Jaydn Su'A will spend an indefinite time on the sideline after scans confirmed he suffered a syndesmosis injury on Anzac Day. Josh McGuire takes his place in the side while Tyrell Fuimaono returns to the team on the bench.

Young guns Tyrell Sloan, Cody Ramsey and Jayden Sullivan have been named in the reserves and could earn a late call-up if Bird is deemed unfit.  

Tigers' To'a tinker

The wind quickly came out of the Wests Tigers' sails following their last gasp win last week with news star fullback Daine Laurie suffered a grade two MCL injury.

The knee injury puts Laurie on the sidelines for Sunday's game with rookie Starford To'a coming in as his replacement.

In his brief NRL career (24 appearances), To'a has played just one at fullback which will no doubt make him a target for one of Ben Hunt's towering bombs.

Englishman Oliver Gildart moves into the centres with back-rower turned centre Luke Garner. Rookie forward Kelma Tuilagi returns to the back row after missing last week's win due to illness forcing Alex Seyfarth back to the interchange bench.

Freeze frame

Skipper Ben Hunt embracing exhilarated Red V members and fans with the Anzac Cup in toe. A fantastic way to commence Red V Members Appreciation Round.
