n just a matter of weeks – 18 days to be exact – two of rugby leagues greatest teams will face off in a battle like never seen before.

Already arch-rivals after more than 100 years of rivalry, including an annual ANZAC Day battle that stops the NRL world for 80 minutes, in Round 21 of this year’s Premiership the Sydney Roosters and St George Illawarra Dragons will go toe-to-toe in a battle of EPIC proportions.

In conjunction with ISC and Marvel Entertainment, Hero Worlds will combine at Allianz Stadium on August 2nd as Captain America and Iron Man take to the hallowed turf.

An American Soldier in World War II, who was transformed into a physically perfect human to defend his nation at the most desperate of times, Captain America represents patriotism and fights for ideals of liberty and justice.

A leader of men, Captain America has been modelled by our own fearless Captain Anthony Minichiello in the launch of this unique, must-have jersey and the two couldn’t be more similar in the eyes of all Tricolours Fans.

Minichiello also sees the synergies between Captain America philosophy and his own, taking inspiration from the character.

“I believe a leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way just like Captain America,” said Minichiello.


Donning a patriotic costume of the world’s greatest trio of colours – Red, White and Blue – Captain America wields an indestructible circular shield to defend himself.

Something Roosters Fans know all about, given the common knowledge that we here at HQ stand by the well known saying ‘Defence Wins Premierships’.

His opponent, Iron Man (Dragons), sings to another tune than that of our Captain America.

An American billionaire playboy, industrialist, and ingenious engineer, Tony Stark suffers a severe chest injury during a kidnapping in which his captors attempt to force him to build a weapon of mass destruction.

He instead creates a powered suit of armour to save his life and escape captivity.

Well, let’s hope the Dragons feel the need to escape Allianz come August 2nd.

Bring on the battle!
