You may think that Mother’s Day at the footy is a hard sell, well think again. The day could be well spent at ANZ Stadium where St George Illawarra Dragons host Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs, and we have found a deal where a family of four can enter for just $25.00. Once inside all mums get a special gift pack and access to a pamper zone.
Three wins in a row to open the 2014 season seem like a distant memory for the Dragons, who have since lost four out of five games. They will be missing Jason Nightingale who suffered a medial ankle ligament injury in the ANZAC test. Josh Dugan and Trent Merrin are also doubtful, both will undergo tests before a final decision is made close to kick off.
Sunday afternoon represents a big opportunity for Sam Williams as he gets the chance to partner Gareth Widdop in the halves. With the impending arrival of Benji Marshall, Williams needs a good game to ensure he does not fall down the pecking order at the Dragons.
The Bulldogs sit atop the NRL ladder, thanks in no small part to three wins secured by late kicks. The six points collected in these games have made a massive difference to the Bulldogs’ season, had they failed to get any points from those games they would currently sit outside the top eight. Lock Greg Eastwood plays his 150th NRL match, while Tim Lafai comes back into the squad after a recent concussion.
