If you were told at the start of the year that when this round nine clash came around one side would be on top of the ladder looking for a seventh straight win, while the other had lost three in a row, it would have come as no surprise. The odds on the Dragons being the benchmark side would have been pretty high, but on Monday night they have the chance to condemn the defending Premier’s to their fourth consecutive defeat.
Injuries are affecting both sides, with Glen Stewart for the Rabbitohs and Josh Dugan for the Dragons the latest additions to the casualty list. John Sutton will return for Souths after a broken jaw and will partner Luke Keary in the halves in the continued absence of Adam Reynolds. Tyson Frizell is back in the Dragons’ starting side after serving a suspension.
All pre-purchased tickets include return rail travel to ANZ Stadium.
