Rivalry Round Tradition: Rabbitohs v Dragons

South Sydney Rabbitohs v St George Illawarra Dragons    
Friday 7.35pm ANZ Stadium


A fierce rivalry that intensified when the all conquering Dragons defeated a young Rabbitohs outfit in the 1965 Grand Final 12 - 8.

Two years later, the Rabbitohs halted the Dragons' incredible premiership winning record when they defeated them in the 1978 Major Semi Final 13 - 8.

In 1971, the Rabbitohs defeated the Dragons 16 - 10 in one of the greatest Grand Finals of all time.

The rivalry remains strong today, with the annual pre-season Charity Shield game a favorite amongst fans.
