Another immortal receives a fitting send off as an important day for St George Illawarra's season fortunes beckons. This is your game day guide for the Dragons' Round 11 clash against the Warriors.

Another immortal tribute

The Dragons will celebrate the life and career of St George legend Johnny Raper with a fitting tribute and plaque unveiling on Saturday afternoon.

Current Dragons front-rower Francis Molo's No. 8 jersey will be retired for Round 11 in honour of the rugby league immortal.

The eight-time premiership winning lock joined St George in 1959 from Newton amidst the Dragons' historic 'Never Before, Never Again' grand final run.

He would retire with 215 first grade games and 57 tries to his name, including 180 appearances and 47 tries for St George.

Raper was a bona fide superstar across the rugby league world. His 39 Tests for Australia and 31 appearances for New South Wales a testament to this.

The St George Illawarra Dragons will deservingly honour Johnny Raper in the middle of Jubilee Oval, a surface he made his own across his illustrious career.

A slice of history

Dragons forward Michael Molo is poised to etch his name into club records when he makes his NRL debut (St George Illawarra player No. 258).

Molo was a standout in the Intrust Super Cup last year and will achieve this long-awaited feat alongside his brother Francis, in what will be a big day for the Molo family.

Cody Ramsey replaces Tyrell Sloan at fullback in another team change for the Red V.

Warrior centurion

The Warriors have their own history to celebrate on Saturday when they travel to Kogarah for Jazz Tevaga's 100th NRL game.

The 26-year-old has played his entire career with the Warriors and becomes the 27th player to record 100 appearances for the club.

Tevaga will play hooker in the absence of Wade Egan (calf) while former Dragon Euan Aitken (head knock), Jesse Arthars (shoulder) and Chanel Harris-Tavita (groin) are all chances to make injury returns.
