Dragons’ home opener at Kograh

NRL premiers St George will open up their title defence with four consecutive away matches, before facing Canterbury at Kograh.

A $13million upgrade to WIN Jubliee Oval means that the Dragons will have to wait until round 5 before facing the Bulldogs.

They will play five of their six opening home games at the stadium, due to a large scale refurbishment to their other ground, WIN Stadium at Woollongong.

“Our home venue allocation has been scheduled around the building works that are currently taking place at both WIN Jubilee Oval and WIN Stadium thanks to the support of the NSW Government,” said Dragons CEO Peter Doust.

“Building programs allow for the venues to be right for these allocated clashes and we are looking forward to improved facilities for all stakeholders in our upgraded venues.

“Ideally we would like to try and alternate our home games between our two venues throughout the season but the schedules of the works don’t allow for this in 2011 meaning that the majority of the first half of our season will be played in Kogarah and the latter half of the season will be played in Wollongong,” added Doust.
