Junior Reps Derby: Dragons, Steelers set for Kogarah battle

Netstrata Jubilee Stadium will this Saturday play host to a quartet of junior representatives clashes between the St George Dragons and Illawarra Steelers in Round 7 of the NSWRL competitions.

Key Information

When: Saturday, March 16th

Where: Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Kogarah


  • 11:00AM: Harold Matthews Cup (under-17s men)
  • 12:30PM: Lisa Fiaola Cup (under-17s women)
  • 2:00PM: Tarsha Gale Cup (under-19s women)
  • 3:30PM: SG Ball Cup (under-19s men)

With three matches of the regular season still to be played, both SG Ball squads will look to solidify their top six spots through the run home.

The Dragons (5th, 8 pts) and the Steelers (3rd, 10 pts) are both firmly in the finals race with a win for either side going a long way towards securing a postseason berth.

St George’s Jesse Williams has enjoyed an outstanding campaign on the left wing having scored a dozen tries from his six outings whilst Steelers winger Tom Kirk is not far off having nabbed eight tries from six games of his own.

The clash will also feature the likes of St George’s Loko Pasifiki Tonga, Finau Latu, and Corey Ackers and Illawarra’s Hayden Buchanan who have spent the summer training with the Dragons NRL squad.

In the Tarsha Gale Cup, the Steelers (1st, 12 pts) – who are fresh off a Round 6 bye – will look to continue their charge towards a potential minor premiership.

The Dragons (13th, 2 pts) will have their work cut out for them trying to contain a Steelers outfit that is the only team in the competition to have won of all their clashes.

Charlotte Basham – who made her NRLW debut in 2023 – is set to line-up for the Steelers along with Australian Schoolgirls representatives Indie Bostock and Evie McGrath.

At Harold Matthews Cup level, expect a tight clash between the Dragons (12th, 6 pts) and Steelers (15th, 4 pts) with only two competition points separating the sides as they look to make a late climb up the ladder.

The Steelers (4th, 10 pts) Lisa Fiaola Cup group is still firmly in the finals mix with just one loss on the year and meet the Dragons (13th, 2 pts) in a crucial clash.
